Extreme Winter Driving Conditions
We are being warned about the storm which is about to hit the country over
the next few days. The ‘Beast from the East’ as it has become known is
certainly a headline grabber.
We want to make sure that we are not going to do anything to become the
headlines ourselves when we are driving in these conditions.
We are told to expect very severe weather- snow, gales, and blizzard
conditions. This safety alert is to prompt us to think about the conditions that
we might be faced with and adjust our driving accordingly.

Fully demist vehicle before setting out.
Check vehicle condition – tyres, brakes, lights, wipers, screen wash levels etc.
Drive with headlights on.
Make sure that you have plenty of fuel.
Have your mobile phone fully charged or an in-car charging lead.
Sun / tinted glasses to reduce glare from snow.
Warm clothing, gloves, torch, snack food and water.

Remember if severe weather is going to make you late, don’t put yourself at risk by driving too fast
for the conditions – its better to be ten minutes late than 40 years too early!!
