    Winter safety tips issued to alert drivers to winter dangers

    By David Brown on November 11, 2014

    The clocks have gone back once again and with this occasion have come the earlier nights, darker evenings, cooler weather and a whole different set of hazards for drivers and road users to be aware of.

    To this end, Auto Express has revealed a series of winter safety tips to help drivers stay safe on the roads. If you have been driving throughout the summer it can be quite a shock to be faced with altogether different road and weather conditions compared to the ones you have been driving in every day.

    For example if you leave work at the usual time you will be driving home in the dark instead of in broad daylight. This can take some getting used to. In addition it is possible to face more severe weather in the form of ice, snow, wind and rain than you would get in the summer months. Even when the weather is good the sun can be very low in the sky both in the morning and in the evening, so you could be faced with being blinded by that even on good days. As you can see, these winter safety tips are very timely indeed.

    Is it really much harder driving in the winter?

    Yes, particularly when the clocks go back and more people are suddenly driving in the dark. When you are not used to it, it can bring many more dangers than you are used to. The weather conditions also change, bringing with them the prospect and chance of having ice on the roads, as well as the potential for snow. The lower position of the sun can also dazzle drivers and make accidents more likely, so you can see there are plenty of hazards that are more common to this time of the year.
