WINTER DRIVING PRECAUTIONS
29th January 2013
During winter additional driving hazards have to be considered. These include adverse weather (rain, snow, frost, standing water) and longer hours of darkness. Following the advice given below will help to ensure your safety when driving in these conditions:
If stranded by bad weather try to ensure that you are not blocking access for emergency vehicles. Remain with the vehicle unless there is shelter nearby. Maintain your circulation by moving your body. If you can, use the engine to keep warm; but do not use the engine if the exhaust cannot vent safely. If you are snowed over ensure that an airway is maintained.
