With temperatures plummeting last weekend to freezing point, we’re all starting to feel the effects of the cold weather setting in. Wrapping up warmly to make a trip out is essential, and making sure you have an ice scraper and a can of de-icer on stand-by is also a good idea.
It is often at this time of year that car accidents can frequently occur as people are still getting used to the icy conditions on the roads, so it is well worth taking some tips on how to drive in icy weather to ensure that you are prepared.
Driver training specialist IAM Drive & Survive offers weekly motoring tips to drivers from its head of training, Simon Elstow, and this week he is advising on driving on frost and ice which the team at Trusted Dealers have modified below:
Elstow said: “When the roads are icy the best advice is to drive as if you’re walking on eggshells. Be prepared for the worst – icy conditions can affect accelerating, steering and braking. Being mentally prepared as well as having the right equipment is vital, so think about any problems you encountered last winter, and what you need to do to overcome them if they recur this year.”
If you are thinking about purchasing a new or used car, now is a good time to look at the best cars for snow and ice, or choosing to opt for a set of winter tyres is also a sensible idea as they will provide your car with much better grip, particularly when temperatures dip below seven degrees or more.
