Minibus Bar

During the winter the weather is often unexpected and unpredictable. Even the best of planners can be caught unawares by a winter storm. These types of things are often unavoidable. If, during these conditions, one is driving a minibus, there are a few tips which might make it a little better. Combined with some common sense, the minibus (and all its passengers) will make it to the destination in a safe manner.

Minibus maintenance

A minibus full of clean windows will go a long way when trying to drive in adverse conditions. Before one set off on one's journey, it is a good idea to clean all of the windows inside and out. Over the course of time, road grime can accumulate on one's window, causing streaks to appear when the windshield wipers are used. If this happens one's visibility will become incredibly impaired. The condensation which occurs on the inside of the bus can harm visibility even more. Therefore, in order ensure the safety of everyone, clean all of the windows thoroughly.

Finding an experienced driver

Fog can be a very dangerous condition to drive a minibus through. If one finds oneself in the midst of a heavy fog, one should be aware of its dangers. Because fog is a form of precipitation, leave one's windshield wipers on a slow setting. Also, be aware of how close one is driving to the car in front. Remember, the car in front is driving in the same conditions and will be handicapped in the same way. As a good rule of thumb, maintain a four second interval between the minibus and the car in front. This will give one a sufficient amount of time to avoid a disastrous wreck should one need to slam on the brakes.

It is possible that the minibus can come equipped with a minibus bar. As already stated, the consumption of alcohol is not usually allowed in a minibus. That's because patrons of an alcohol based minibus bar tend to get a little bit out of hand and this does not bode well for the minibus bar, or for the rest of the minibus for that matter. For this reason, there is typically a hefty fee attached if one wants to have the use of a minibus bar. That's because, should any repairs or cleaning need to be done after one has left, the minibus company will have the funds to cover it. If one is willing to pay, one can specify what kinds of drink that the minibus bar should be stocked with. However, if one is going to be consuming alcohol on the trip, it is important that there is a designated driver. Either hire a driver from the minibus company or elect a responsible person to refrain from using the minibus bar.

Ultimately, one should aim to drive as safely as possible. Going over the posted speed limit in bad weather conditions is not a wise thing to do. Neither is frequenting the minibus bar and then getting behind the wheel. In order to keep safe, drive with a high amount of finesse. Following the guidelines will help one get to ones destination intact.
