Drivers Not Prepared For Cold Spell

A poll by the AA has suggested 44 per cent of drivers have done nothing to prepare for severe conditions on the roads this winter.

During a time when snow and ice is still causing travel misery for motorists across the country, the AA has revealed how few drivers have taken steps to prepare themselves for worsening conditions.

Male drivers (45 per cent) and those aged 25-34 (51 per cent) were most likely to have done nothing to prepare.

Of those who have taken precautionary measures, 39 per cent have put items such as a shovel or blankets in their car, 19 per cent have bought a sturdy pair of walking boots, and six per cent have made arrangements to stay with friends or colleagues if the weather suddenly deteriorates.
