Breaking Down This Winter

The Christmas Season is finally upon us; Christmas parties are in full swing, families are journeying to visit, hectic shopping has taken over the next few weekends and mothers across the country are dropping presents off to friends and family members like there’s no tomorrow.

So I’m sure we all have plans for our cars to break down this winter?

No? Then you had better read our top tips to avoid breaking down here:

– Always be prepared. You will always break down when you least expect it, so always keep a kit in your car ready for this eventuality. In this emergency kit you will want some water, some back-up fuel if you have ran out, a flash light, some blankets to keep you warm and a mobile phone with it’s battery charged full. This is also a good idea if you are involved in an accident.

– Remember your Hazards. If you break down, you will need to switch on your Hazard lights to alert other drivers of your presence and your vehicle status. This is especially important on winter nights as the dark will make it harder to see you.

Safe driving from Britannia!
