HOW TO CHECK YOUR CAR TYRES ARE SAFE
Before embarking on your winter journey, check your tyre pressure is at the recommended level, tyres are free from damage, and treads are above the minimum legal depth.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR WINTER TRAVEL
Keep essential items such as warm clothes, sturdy boots and food and drink in the car in case you get stranded, and keep an eye on weather forecasts and travel bulletins to make sure the route is safe. Ensure the vehicle’s lights are clean and working so you can see and be seen. Then, before moving off, clear frost from all the windows and mirrors, and clear any mist from inside the windows with a blast of warm air from the ventilation system. Turn your air-conditioning to a warm setting to more efficiently dehumidify the interior.
