Safety: checking a vehicle

BBC Safety advisor Christian McNally is bossed through a series of easy vehicle safety checks by a ten year-old.

Regularly checking any vehicle you drive - whether it's a hire car, a pool car or your own - enables you to identify potential problems before they become a hazard.

This simple procedure includes checking oil levels, tyres, lights, windscreens, indicators and exhaust.

"When it comes to your brakes, don't take any chances." – Christian McNally
