Tips for winter driving

  • For improved vision, replace worn wiper blades, clean your windscreen inside and out, and check all lights are working properly.

  • Use your air conditioning to de-mist your windscreen.

  • Stopping distances are ten times longer in snow or ice, so slow down and take it easy.

  • Make sure you have a coat, wellies, an umbrella and a drink in your car.

  • Consider changing to winter tyres that give better grip in cold, wet conditions.
