Snow Season Motoring Advice

Motorists in countries that are further away from the equator are getting close, if not yet inside snow season. Are you a motorist within a snow-prone region? Well remember that taking proper precautions will guarantee your having snow season motoring without much pain…could even be with pleasure.

[dropcap]F[/dropcap]ollowing recent yellow warnings of snow forecast across much of United Kingdom, for instance, the IAM issued advice about driving in wintery weather as follows:

  • Think about the safest possible way to get to your destination. 
  • If you can, avoid traveling on quieter roads or country lanes as these are less likely to be gritted.
  • Don’t forget to clear off snow piled on the roof and bonnet as it can fall and blow on to the windscreen or the vehicle behind.
  • Never drive too fast that you risk losing control, but avoid driving so slowly that you risk losing momentum, especially when driving up a slope.
    Never drive too fast that you risk losing control, but avoid driving so slowly that you risk losing momentum, especially when driving up a slope.

    Start your car gently from stationary and avoid high revs. If road conditions are icy and you drive a manual car, move off in a higher gear rather than first gear. Stay in a higher gear to avoid wheel spin.

  • Never drive too fast that you risk losing control, but avoid driving so slowly that you risk losing momentum, especially when driving up a slope.
  • Double your stopping distance from the vehicle in front of you. This will give you more time to slow down without relying on your brakes.

Have a safe motoring.
