Preparing for winter driving – personal injury lawyers in Ower
As winter closes in there are a few things you should be doing to your car, and adjusting about your driving to keep yourself safer. During the winter months it is more likely that you will have an accident due to the weather rather than other drivers, because there will be more rainy days, freezing temperatures, and it will get dark much earlier.
There are a few things you can do to help yourself to stay safe in the winter on the roads, and here are a few of them:
- Check your anti-freeze. Have the car’s coolant system flushed out in preparation for winter, as too much coolant can actually lead to overheating. Check for leaks and any problems which could potentially cause problems over the winter.
- Store your car carefully. In really cold weather it can be worth the money to store your car in a garage close to where you live or work, to keep it warm and dry overnight. You may run into far more problems with your car if it has been left out in freezing temperatures overnight.
- Change your windshield wipers. These need replacing every year anyway, so why not change them as you head into winter so they are in the best condition when you need them the most.
- Avoid driving in extreme weather. If it has been snowing then this is one thing, but you should avoid driving in a blizzard or any extreme weather.
