Equipping the modern family car for the Zombie Apocalypse

Have you ever considered how you’d get about in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse? If you’re a fan of the Walking Dead then it doesn’t seem to be much of a problem to use cars that you find on the road as they all seem to be fully fuelled up and ready to go with the minimum of fuss. Nor does it appear that the petrol or diesel degrades. Still it’s as well as to be prepared for such things and there are a few simple steps to take to ensure that your car is ready for this end of days event. You might well own a nice little motor that would not look out of place on a Car lap tray. In fact, you can have a look at options for this at the following website https://personalisedlaptrays.co.uk/. Let’s start with the basics. One quick note, tempting though it is to turn the thing into a Mad Max style spike laden monstrosity right from the outset, please don’t. It will only cause disgusted looks from the neighbours and if the reports don’t turn out to be true about the dead rising then you’re going to look pretty foolish and over the top for the school run.

Remove the windows and fit grills instead. It is a classic mistake to think that toughened glass is able to withstand a good battering from a zombie horde, but it won’t stand up to this intensity for any great length of time and one of the windows is bound to go. One of the earliest errors made is that you should be tempted to shoot your way out thus breaking the glass anyway. As we shall see fuel consumption will be of a paramount importance so you’re not going to have the air con on anyway. If it gets cold put your coat on and buy some goggles.

Driving technique. As we have briefly touched on with the air con it is very good idea to driving conservatively and slowly to conserve fuel. Remember Zombies are slow, it’s very unlikely that there will be any running ones as it is medically proven fact their legs will snap off at the ankles. Also, there maybe a lot of rubbish and other cars left abandoned by people who haven’t read this article.
Ensure that the car is properly serviced. This should happen anyway but the last thing you’ll want is a dodgy fan belt on the A46 as swarm of the dead are slowly meandering their way up the hill to get you.

Don’t stop for passengers, and if you do check for bites. Well, best of luck see you on the road to the Highlands.
