As the temperature continues to fall there is no denying that the blustery winter months are approaching in full force.
The Met Office advises that drivers prepare their vehicle appropriately and consider keeping a “winter kit” in the boot.
Some items for the “winter kit” include:
- Ice scraper
- Jump leads
You never know when you might need these items!
It is also important to check your vehicle is prepared for winter. Don’t forget to:
- Check windscreen wipers, washers, and demisters are all working correctly
- Ensure all lights are working correctly
- Check the condition and tread depth of your tyres
- Top up the anti-freeze in your car
- Use good quality screen wash that protects down to -35degrees to prevent water freezing.
With days getting shorter, driving in the dark, in rainy conditions, or on ice slicked roads, can be very dangerous. Dark, early mornings can be filled with thick fog which can make driving a real challenge.
There have been numerous road traffic accidents on Lincolnshire’s roads involving cars, vans, motorcyclists and pedestrians. The consequences of a road traffic accident can be life changing.
If you have been in a road traffic accident you will know how distressing they can be and how far reaching the effects can be for everyone involved, not just physically, but also financially and even emotionally.
