    How to use your car more easily in winter, and make car accident claims in South Yorkshire

    When it comes to winter time, it can suddenly be quite unpleasant to take longer journeys in the car. Although cars usually have heaters which you can run to keep yourself warm on the coldest days, this ends up costing more than when you don’t have it on, and some people can’t afford to do it all of the time.

    Not only this, but it can also be tricky to get your car up and running on a cold morning, if the windscreen is frozen up, or if it has been snowing. Here are some ways that you can make it more easy to run your car in the winter time.

    • Keep it inside. When you get home at the end of the day, instead of parking your car outside in the street you should think about parking it in the garage. Even if it then takes you a little longer to get it out at the beginning of the day, it will save you a lot of time when it comes to scraping ice and warming the car up.
    • Buy de-icer. De-icer is your best friend during the winter months. It helps you to get the ice off of your car in a much faster time in the mornings, and may even help to prevent your car from icing up in the first place. Make sure that you have plenty in reserve for when you need it.
    • Run the heat before you get in the car. When you are getting ready to leave, run out to the car and put the heating on whilst you are getting your bag together for work. Although the heat may only be on for a few minutes, it will make all the difference when you get into the car.
    • Be careful on icy roads. If you are driving on a particularly icy day, be aware that there may be ice on the road that you cannot see, and try to take your time and drive carefully.
