Now that so many British people work from home, many may not drive their car as much as before the pandemic.
Goodyear advise that people check the car’s bonnet for debris. A spokesperson said: “If your vehicle isn’t regularly used and is sitting in your driveway, it can easily begin to gather twigs and leaves, which have the potential to catch fire in a hot engine.
“So, to stop your car overheating, make sure to inspect the grille and underneath the bonnet for any debris before setting off.”
They added: “Check your lights. You might be so caught up with checking your oil and fluid levels that it can be easy to overlook your lights.
