    Winter is nearly here; make your journey to work safer in the snow


    One of the most difficult and dangerous weather conditions in which to drive is snow. Snow can cover obstacles; it can make it difficult to drive through, and can cause so many road traffic accidents. So, here is our advice on how to stay safe in the snow.

    Get your car checked to prevent a road traffic accident

    Before winter and snow kicks in make sure you get your car checked over to prevent any serious road accident claims. This means checking the levels of your oil and water as well as checking tyre pressures. Deflated tyres could cause havoc for you if driving in snow, as it can mean sliding and skidding more due to less grip. This could quite easily turn into a nasty traffic accident claim, even though it is something easily prevented by a bit of maintenance.

    Take it easy

    Especially when travelling in the snow, leave a lot longer time than you usually do to get to work. This is because not only will you have to travel a lot slower to be safe, but this will also help you to stay calm. When you get stressed this is when more accidents on the road occur, as concentration is often lapsed.

    Take plenty of supplies

    When driving anywhere, even to work make sure you take provisions with you including the things you would need if your car broke down, as well as blankets, water, and some snacks. A fully charged mobile phone would also be a good idea. This is especially important to prevent or exacerbate any driver injury claims. If you do find yourself stuck in the snow on your way to work, always make sure you stay warm and tell someone where you are, including your work.  Being prepared is key to preventing serious injury claims.

    If you do have an accident, or have had a road traffic accident, in the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim. Speak to Accident Advice Helpline to find out how much you could claim, either online, or by speaking to someone on their advice line which is answered 24/7 on 0800 689 0500.
