It’s no surprise to most that there have been bouts of adverse weather over the past few weeks. With colder winds sweeping the country, the East and South have been impacted as well as the North, and further weather warnings for February have been issued. Cold weather is prime for creating not only pressure and disruption whilst travelling on the roads but will also single-handedly trial many vehicles – especially classics. Footman James’ partners, RAC, have even increased resources both at the roadside and at call centres in response to this.
Therefore, we’ve got some driving tips that are beneficial when driving in the winter months. Breakdowns are almost twice as common during these cold months than other times of the year, so be sure to save yourself some strife by considering these top tips. We know that many of you will do these as a matter of course, but it’s also worth having a reminder of the basics.
These simple steps can help ensure that you stay safe not only driving through winter, but through unexpected bouts of bad weather. Knowing what to check and how to address issues whilst driving in such conditions can make all the difference to your safety on the roads.
