Safety tips for driving in the winter

  • Drive in control - make sure that your car is in great condition before the winter starts, book in for a free Winter Check at W R Davies Toyota
  • Trip planning – check the forecast before setting off and make sure you leave plenty of time for unexpected delays and to take a break
  • Before setting off make sure your lights are clean and always on, and use a low beam during any storms as this will help you see better as a high beam will reflect off snowflakes/ ice
  • Clear all the snow off your car before setting off to stop it blowing off your car and affecting any vehicles behind you
  • Always be prepared - make sure you have a mobile phone charger just in case as well as an emergency kit just in case it's required (find out what you should include in your kit here: https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/winter-driving/Winter-breakdown-kit-checklist
  • Download apps to help you prepare and manage your journey whilst travelling - Waze App, Android Auto and Apple Car Play are useful when you're out and about.
