Top tips for driving safely in winter

1. Drive slowly — Speed ​​limits indicate the maximum speed that should be traveled on that type of road. Depending on the type of vehicle you are driving and current weather conditions, you may need to slow down.

2. Plan extra space — Stopping distances can more than double in bad weather. Maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front allows more time to plan and brake if needed.

3. Driving in fog — Before driving into fog, it is important to turn on the fog lights, check your mirrors and slow down. Fog creates low levels of visibility, so remember to be cautious of other drivers who may not be using headlights and to keep a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of you.

4. Loss of control — If the steering stops responding, it’s likely that the tires don’t have enough grip on the road. The best way to handle this is to ease off the throttle and gradually slow down. It is advisable to switch to winter tires before the winter period, to increase grip at the wheel.

5. Driving on ice — When the temperature drops to the freezing point, beware of icy conditions. Drive slowly and avoid braking whenever possible, as this can cause the car to skid out of control.

6. Know when to stop — If visibility becomes extremely poor, drive carefully until you can safely stop at a gas station, service station, or nearby safe place (such as a rest area ) until visibility increases. Avoid the hard shoulder, as the chances of an incident occurring there are much higher during the winter months.

7. How to drive in the snow — If your car gets stuck while driving in the snow, ease off the accelerator and avoid spinning your tires. Instead, try the rocking maneuver which might give you enough momentum to chase.

8. The Highway Code — Be sure to check the Highway Code which applies in England, Scotland and Wales, or the Highway Code for Northern Ireland and see Rules 226 at 237 for more advice on driving in adverse weather conditions.
