Winter-Proof Your Car

We are all surely feeling the oncoming effects of the slowly approaching winter – the drop in temperature, the darker mornings, the weather gradually becoming foggier and wetter as the days go on. And there is no place you are likely to feel the effects of the winter season more so than in your car (unless you are outside!)

It is important at this time of year to learn to adjust to driving in the Winter – this encompasses a range of different aspects, from altering your driving style to suit the wetter roads, learning to drive in snow, rain and hail and modifying your car and in-car behaviour to suit the colder season.

This means preparing for the worst, to ready yourself for any scenario. It is a good idea to keep your car stocked up with the essentials in the event of a break-down this winter. So keep some spare oil, fuel, windscreen washer fluid and water inside your boot, as well as preparing an emergency kit. This should include, but not be limited to, a spare phone with full battery, food and water, and even blankets – this may sound a little over-cautious, but you would be glad that you took the precautions if the worst should happen and you are left stranded in the snow!

Safe driving from Britannia!
