Winter Driving Advice

29th November 2016

With Winter, and the chance of poor weather, just around the corner we're reminding people of some key driving tips

  • Check your lights and windscreen are clean before you set off on a journey. Remove snow and ice from your vehicle
  • Check your route before you set off. If the weather is really bad consider if your journey is really necessary
  • If there’s snow or ice on the roads reduce your speed and brake gently
  • Avoid driving through flood water if you don’t know how deep it is
  • Always wear a seatbelt, and ensure children are in a car seat when required. You can find information about car seats here: https://www.gov.uk/child-car-seats-the-rules/using-a-child-car-seat-or-booster-seat
