Winter brings difficult driving conditions with frost, ice and snow all adversely affecting road conditions and vehicle handling. So, for those making essential journeys during coronavirus travel restrictions, Richard Gladman, IAM RoadSmart’s Head of Driving and Riding Standards, has these top tips to help stay safe during sub-zero conditions.
Richard said: “Preparation is the key to avoiding a dangerous situation whilst driving in snowy or icy conditions. Don’t rely on the performance of your car systems to get you out of trouble – allow time, make sure you have good visibility all round and carry the right equipment. If conditions are extreme remember the best advice is not to travel.”
