Preparing for Winter Driving & Staying Safe

Keeping your vehicle well maintained is important all year round, but doubly so in winter. For example, worn tyres won’t hold the road in wet conditions as well as those with a good, deep tread.

Make sure all exterior lights are working correctly and that windscreen wiper blades are in good condition. Check the oil, coolant and washer fluid levels. And, don’t leave home on that long trip over lonely country roads without enough fuel for the journey.

The RAC recommend you gather a few items at the start of the winter season and keep them in your car – just in case.

Below are items that should be in your emergency kit:

Ice scraper and de-icer
Torch and spare batteries – or a wind-up torch
Warm clothes and blankets – for you and all passengers
Boots
First aid kit
Jump start cables
Food and a warm drink in a thermos
Shovel
Reflective warning sign
Road atlas
Sunglasses – the glare off the snow can be dazzling
Mobile phone charger
