Car insurance customers worried by wintry weather

Almost half of British drivers are concerned about driving in wintry conditions, a survey by Saga Motor Insurance has found.

Researchers polled 2,021 adults in September and found that 48% of drivers would be reluctant to drive in bad weather.

Nearly two-fifths of motorists admitted that they were most afraid of driving in snow and ice; one-quarter strongly disliked taking their car out in heavy rain; and 32% would prefer not to go motoring in fog.

The survey also revealed that 25% of women tend to drive less during the winter months, while 23% of over-50s avoid driving in the dark.
