Now the clocks have gone back and a frosty chill has settled in, the Motability Scheme has shared its advice for driving safely this winter.
This winter driving checklist coincides with the annual Road Safety Week initiative (21-27 November) and has been compiled with Motability Scheme customers in mind.
• Aim to stick to main roads that will have been gritted and allow extra time in icy conditions.
• Check the weather forecast as well as online traffic reports before setting off to be aware of road conditions. If the weather conditions are severe or heavy snow is forecast, consider whether your journey is essential.
