With many parts of the UK forecast snow over the next few weeks we are all starting to feel the colder weather hit. Snow and ice can literally happen overnight and you may wake up in the morning worrying about how you are going to get to work or get the children to school. It is important that you are prepared for this weather and if you do not wish to drive in it, make sure you have alternative arrangements in place, or make sure that your car is winter ready.
Tyres are vital when it comes to bad weather. You need to check that they have plenty of tread left on them, are inflated to the correct amount and have no damage. If you are at all in doubt, it is best to take your vehicle to a car garage where they can check properly for you. Many car garages offer free winter checks around this time to year which you may want to take advantage of.
With the roads often covered in grit, melted snow and ice and mud, your window screen will become dirty very quickly. If you cannot use your washer jets to clear your screen you may find yourself in the dangerous position of not being able to see properly. Be sure to use a good quality screen wash that is designed for freezing temperatures and to keep it topped up at all times.
