Guide to a covid-safe road trip.
These simple precautions will ensure a healthy and happy return to driving.
#NRMA Open Road July/August
How Can I Be Safe While Driving?
Wash hands before and after you drive anywhere. Where ever possible, limit the number of passengers you drive around as more passengers means increased exposure risk.
Clean the door handles, the steering wheel, gear stick and air con and radio buttons with disinfectant wipes each time you get in the car.
How Do I Refuel My Car Safely?
A petrol pump handle passes through numerous hands each day.
While petrol stations have stepped up cleaning procedures, sanitizing your hands before and after, or putting on gloves and disposing of them after filling up, can further minimise risk.
Once you’ve finished driving, the NRMA recommends cleaning your steering wheel, gear stick, seatbelt, handbrake and anything else that you may have touched.
