The Highways Agency is encouraging road users to spend a few minutes making sure they, and their vehicle, are fully prepared for severe weather. You might think that most of their advice is blindingly obvious, but a survey showed that: Many motorists (45%) don’t do any winter checks at all on their vehicle Nearly two-thirds of drivers (63%) do not check their anti-freeze, oil or water before setting off on a winter journey Less than half (41%) said they checked their lights were working before setting out. Just over half (53%) of drivers don’t have warm clothes in their car in case of emergency. Fewer than half (42%) of drivers carry de-icer in their vehicle. Almost two-thirds (64%) don’t carry drinking water. Only a third (33%) carry a warm drink, around the same number (32%) take food, and (37%) said they packed a blanket. A few minutes of preparation could be a life saver. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/survey-shows-many-drivers-wont-be-ready-when-winter-bites
