Winter sense

When driving, always dress appropriately for the weather. Today’s cars come with climate control, heated seats and powerful windscreen wipers, so it’s easy to be lulled into a false sense of security. But what if your heater suddenly doesn’t work or you break down during chilly weather? You will be caught out and quickly become cold. Plan ahead, make sure you’ve got a hat, scarf and coat plus a rug, a torch, mobile phone charger, and suitable provisions such as water and chocolate in case you get stranded at the roadside or stuck in a lengthy traffic jam. To help yourself and others, also keep a tow rope and shovel in your boot.
