How to properly set up for driving?

We all remember our driving lessons at driving school, “adjust your seat, move the mirrors, adjust the steering wheel and put on your seat belt”.  Indeed, these are elementary safety rules that allow you to feel more comfortable at the wheel, but also to react more easily and to carry out your checks more efficiently.

Here are a few tips that any driver from our transport company in Monaco could give you.

Start by adjusting your body …

Adjusting one’s body of course means getting comfortable in the seat, so that you should be able to press down on the pedals without moving. Also, the height of the seat and headrest allows you to have a global view of the road while being comfortable, as does the inclination of the backrest.

Finally, the steering wheel must be in a good position in front of you so that you can control it without stretching or bending your arms. Moreover, too high will obstruct the vision of the road and too low will not be comfortable for the arms.

… Then adjust in relation to the eyes

Visibility is perhaps the most important thing for drivers. The interior mirror and both exterior mirrors should provide a picture of just about everything behind the car. Of course, there are blind spots that you will have to check by turning slightly. That is actually one of the reasons why it’s important to be comfortable in your seat.

Driving safely in Monaco

They felt the heat! We’re talking about the owners of the Ferrari F40 which burst into flames on February 18th in the streets of Monaco. They were inside the vehicle, driving, when the fire broke out. They managed to get out before they were injured. What was also hot, as a result, was the heavy traffic that the incident caused just a stone’s throw from the Grimaldi Forum. Public Security officers took up the challenge to relieve the private drivers and drivers who were working at the time of the incident.

Not an uncommon event

Car fires are not as rare as one might think, it’s a common incident for firefighters. What is rare, if not impossible, is that it also causes the engine to explode. This is only seen in the movies.

What is also rare is the model that burned. The Ferrari F40 was produced in only 1315 units between 1987 and 1992. Its value is estimated at more than a million euros. While recovering for the shock, the owner couple could now call upon the services of a private driver company.

Entrusting their journeys to a private driver

In this case, it is quite understandable that you don’t want to get back behind the wheel yourself. The advantage of our chauffeur-driven car service is that our cars are brand new and maintained like new all year round. Safety is paramount to us, the engine, as well as the interior and bodywork of our luxury vehicles are checked to reduce the risk of technical incidents such as the one that occurred on this Ferrari to a minimum.
