Winter driving can be more challenging than any other time of year. Icy roads, poor visibility and an increased risk of breakdown mean drivers need to adapt the way they drive and be alert for danger.
Sadly, far too few drivers take enough precautionary measures to prepare themselves for the challenges of winter driving. The combination of cold temperatures and wet or icy roads can be lethal, even at low speeds, if you are not adequately prepared.
There are a number of things that we can all do to minimise risks, planning journeys and preparing the car before we travel. Simply taking the time to properly de-ice and demist your windows makes a huge difference to your safety on the roads in the coldest months of the year.
