This week’s tips from the IAM’s director of standards, Mark Lewis, are about driving safely in frost and ice. With temperatures near freezing, here’s how you can ensure your journey is a safe one for the road.
Even when frost thaws, ice will stay around areas that are often shaded or near bridges that are exposed to wind-chill. Consider how you drive through these micro-climates and be prepared to slow down if you need to.
