See towing for tips on pulling
trailers and caravans.
If you have a heavy load inside your car:
- make sure your tyres are properly inflated
- remember that heavy loads can affect your car's handling and performance - it will take longer to stop and longer to overtake other cars
- make sure nothing can slide around if you turn or brake suddenly - loose items could fly around in a crash and hurt someone
- make sure you’ve got a clear view behind - either through the rear window or in your side mirrors.
