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.

Same sort of checks I used to do when I was courting laugh.gif



Well maybe not the oil and water and anti-freeze, don't think I checked the lights either, definitely not the warm clothing or drinking water

Ah, a blanket, now that I always did.
