As temperatures start to drop we will once again find frost and ice covering our cars in the morning so here are some winter driving techniques and tips from the driver training team here at Drive Tech. We would recommend all drivers to carry a few winter essentials for daily de-icing and a few robust tools just in case of heavy snow fall. Essential for those motorists who regularly drive in winter conditions. In the event of a break down in cold weather these items can keep you safe and warm.
Suggestions for a Winter Survival kit for you to carry in your Car.
- De Icer/ice scraper
- Wind up torch or torch and spare batteries
- Foil or Wool Blanket
- Walking Boots/shoe grips
- Hand warmers
- Flask of hot water/drink
- High Viz Vest
“Be safe this Winter”.
Drivers may lack experience in driving in these difficult conditions. As a road user (motorist) you will have a responsibility to yourself and other road users. What can you do to assist in having a safe journey?
Consider whether the journey is necessary, obtain the latest weather information, plan your journey allowing loads of extra time, tell someone your plans.
