The Biggest Lesson of 2020: Expect the Unexpected!

2020 is not a year the world will forget in a hurry!

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives– the way we shop, the way we work, the way we interact.

But perhaps the biggest lesson of all from 2020 is to always expect the unexpected!

No matter how unlikely a scenario seems, from now on we will all be taking precautions to be prepared for the worst. This includes on the road.

Poor planning for a winter on the roads can lead to untimely breakdowns, unexpected costs, and it can even compromise the safety of yourself and others on the road.

There are actions you can take to reduce the likelihood of getting into trouble on the road, and measures you can take to ensure you are prepared should the worst happen.

  • Check the weather before your journey, particularly if you are driving a large distance as conditions may worsen during your trip
  • Pack an emergency kit - ice scraper, de-icer, jump leads, reflective warning triangle (preferably two), in-car phone charger and/or a portable battery charger, blanket, torch, cereal bar, bank cards, contact details of friends, family
  • Familiarise yourself with Accident Aftercare services and keep a note of contact information in your car for quick reference in an emergency. This number can also be saved in your phone. The Donnelly Accident Aftercare service will support you whether the accident is fault or non-fault. We can assist with recovery, replacement vehicles, legal, medical, legal, insurance claims and repairs
  • Invest in a Winter Health Check for your vehicle for peace of mind. At Donnelly Group, our £19.99 service checks your lights, battery, brakes, tyres and wipers.

When taking to the road, don’t assume ‘it won’t happen to me’. To stay safe on the roads this winter, plan and prepare as though it might happen to you.
