Winter Driving Top Tips November 21, 2007

Its that time of year again where the nights are drawing in and the weather is noticably colder.

Dark nights and cold weather are not the only problems facing motorists during the winter. Driving rain, snow, and more recently in the UK, blizzards, ice and sun glare are all out in winter causing problems on our roads.

All of these things can be overcome with a little planning so that you get safely to your destination in time for Christmas.
Here are our top 5 tips for winter driving:

  1. Check your wiper blades. Replace any cracked, worn or
    split wipers as visibilty is key througout the winter.
  2. Check your windscreen for chips. Small chips can easily
    crack and shatter the windscreen due to the extreme cold
    weather in winter. Any chips need to be fixed by a
    qualified technician.
  3. Be seen. Check your lights and make sure the headlight
    levels are adjusted correctly. Replacing broken bulbs
    is cheap and always worth the effort.
  4. Tyres and Tread. Check your tyres have enough tread for
    the winter. Consider replacing any tyres that are close
    to the legal limit as you will need the extra traction
    during the winter months.
  5. Keep Jack Frost at bay. Top up your antifreeze levels
    to keep your engine running smoothly. Make sure you have
    a few cans of de-icer handy for those extra cold mornings.

So there you have it, 5 ways to stay safe throughout the winter.  1 final top tip is to visit Quotezone for cheap car insurance quotes.
