We all know how cold winter mornings can be in the UK so it pays to be prepared.
Macclesfield, Cheshire (PRWEB UK) 26 November 2013
Recent driving safety tips offered by the Institute of Advanced Motorists to help motorists stay safe on the roads this winter should be taken seriously - warns Car Loan 4U Director Ryan Dignan.
Peter Rodger, the chief examiner at the Institute of Advanced Motorists, recently suggested that before driving to work in the freezing winter weather, commuters should try to change the time they travel or work from home - but if that is not possible, drivers should follow warnings regarding their local roads.
Other safety advice included planning ahead if there is a serious or obvious threat of snowy and icy conditions, with drivers encouraged to drive at a walking pace if it means avoiding sudden stops and starts.
Car Loan 4U Director Ryan Dignan, comments:
“It doesn't matter if you are driving a brand new car with all the latest safety features, a huge 4x4 or a modern used car, snow and ice can kill if you don't plan ahead and drive with caution.
“Sticking to A-roads and other main routes when possible is always a sensible idea as they have usually been gritted by the local authority. However, just because a road has been gritted, it doesn't mean the threat of snow and ice goes away, especially if there has been more rain or snowfall since it was carried out.
"Many of our customers who buy a car with finance then use their new vehicle to commute to work, that's why the advice from the Institute of Advanced Motorists aimed at commuters is so important.
