    Prepare against winter road accidents


    Winter typically brings about a rise in car accidents, especially amid the kind of snowy weather being forecast for the days ahead.

    That’s why a leading tyre retailer is recommending that motorists plan for the bad weather and consider swapping to winter or cold weather tyres.

    Micheldever/Protyre is offering a 10-point plan to help keep control in difficult driving conditions such as wet, ice and snow.

    Good tyres can prevent road accidents

    1. Driving in slippery conditions needs skilful and delicate use of the vehicle controls, steering, brakes and accelerator
    2. In such conditions, accelerate and brake very gently
    3. Use the gears to help reduce speed smoothly
    4. Drive in as high a gear as possible to avoid wheelspin
    5. If a vehicle is stuck in snow or ice, do not excessively spin the wheels. This can harm the tyres or even cause one to burst
    6. If the car gets into a slide, keep off the brake, clutch and the accelerator until it is back under control
    7. Ensure additional space between you and other vehicles and try to anticipate what is happening
    8. Keep well clear of other vehicles
    9. Undertake frequent tyre checks for pressures, tread depth and overall condition
    10. Consider fitting cold weather/winter tyres. They offer better grip and reduced stopping distances compared with summer tyres when the temperature drops below 7oC. With forecasters predicting a possible cold snap, buying a set of winter or cold weather tyres could prove a valuable investment
