Accident Solicitor in Stirling

Keeping safe on the road is always important, and never more so than in winter. At this time of year, the driving conditions deteriorate – sometimes dramatically. Generally, the temperature is quite low and there is the risk of rain. But the weather can easily become severe – the threat of snow and ice is something that all drivers have to think about.

If you’re going on the road in winter, you must stay safe. The risk of getting into an accident is increased – just ask any accident solicitor in Stirling about winter driving, and they will tell you to avoid it at all costs.

Life goes on

Of course, you can’t stop driving in winter – you still need to go to work and do all those things that are necessary to function, such as shopping, taking the children to school, and visiting friends and family. It’s just a question of taking a few extra precautions.

Here are a few tips on staying safe in winter when you’re on the road.

1) Do you have to make the trip? If the weather’s bad, ask yourself whether your journey is essential. If it isn’t, then consider putting it off until it’s safer to travel.

2) Are you driving far? If you’re going on a long journey, check the weather forecast before you set off. Look at the weather for your destination as well as your own area. If there’s a risk of snow, don’t set off. It’s not worth it.

3) Make sure you’re fit to drive. You may think you’ll be all right to drive after only a few hours’ sleep, but you could be increasing your risk of an accident. An accident solicitor in Stirling would tell you to get plenty of rest – and avoid driving when you’d normally be in bed.

4) Perform checks on your car. The following things need to be checked regularly:

  • Brakes
  • Tyres
  • Fluids (oil, antifreeze, washer fluid)
  • Windows (for visibility)
