According to new research by 1ST Central an estimated 4.4million drivers are failing to take any precaution when on the road during the sustained hot weather.
Meteorologists are predicting that it could be the hottest summer since 1976 which is why drivers are being urged to take care.
More than two million drivers (5 per cent) are likely to get in a tricky situation with the heat damaging their tyres, yet three fifths (62 per cent) don’t bother to check if their tyres are in a good condition before setting off, suggests the research.
Four fifths of drivers (84 per cent) don’t check their car batteries in the summer despite running the risk of the water evaporating, leading the acid to corrode the plates of the car.
Furthermore, seven in ten motorists (69 per cent) will also forget to check their oil levels which is essential to keeping the car cool in the heat.
