The most important thing for any new or used car owner to do when the weather is so severe is be road-ready for a white Easter.
Macclesfield, Cheshire (PRWEB UK) 27 March 2013
This time last year the weather was beautiful and sunny but Easter 2013 is playing out differently according to the UK weather forecast from the MET Office.
If the reports turn out to be accurate, then motorists in the UK should be bracing themselves for the coldest Easter on record since 1962. Latest weather reports have predicted a 90% chance of snow with most of the United Kingdom expected to have winter-like conditions heading into the 2013 Easter bank holiday.
An Amber Weather Alert has been put in to place for the North of England, Yorkshire, the Midlands and the East of England – which means that extreme weather should be expected.
The Department for Transport has already issued a strong warning to drivers ahead of the UK public bank holiday and advised motorists to only make car journeys once they have checked the latest travel information along with their local weather reports.
Car Loan 4U Co-Director Ryan Dignan comments:
“The most important thing for any new or used car owner to do when the weather is so severe is be road-ready for a white Easter."
“This means making extra checks on your vehicle to make sure that you can’t get caught out if the weather rapidly changes on you or you break down. It sounds quite extreme but it can happen to anyone."
“Drivers should never assume that they, or indeed their car, is an exception to the rule and should pack extra clothing, food, water and of course make sure the car is topped up with fuel. If you are worried about the conditions it's best not to make the journey at all unless you absolutely have to, and even then you should always let someone know where you are going or what time to expect you back.”
