Winter Driving Advice
Winter driving can be challenging even for experienced drivers, so it is important that your vehicle is ready no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.
You should ensure that you always check:
Windscreen and Visibility
And Before you set off
- Allow extra time for winter journeys.
- Try to get up at least 10 minutes early, to give you time to de-ice the car.
- Check fuel levels – keep at least a quarter of a tank in case of unexpected delay.
- Don’t drive off like a tank-commander, with a tiny hole cleared in the windscreen.
- Clear all windows using a scraper and de-icer.
- Use a cigarette lighter to warm a key for a frozen lock.
- Plan routes to favour major roads, which are more likely to be cleared and gritted.
- Don’t drive with a cold if you’re feeling unwell and on any medicine that could make you drowsy.
