Ensuring Your Car is Safe this Winter

safe car this winter

As the cold weather takes hold, we’ve already seen our first snowfall for November wreaking havoc across some parts of the UK. While it can be picturesque to look at, winter weather conditions can make driving much more dangerous.
In this article we explore the top safety measures that you should consider for your vehicle this winter.

Checking Your Brakes

Ensuring your car’s brakes are in good working order is essential at this time of year. With harsher winter weather conditions it’s more important than ever that your brakes are on top form. Alongside this, be sure to check your brake fluid is at the level it’s supposed to be at all times. If your brakes begin to feel spongy when you place your foot down on the pedal, this is a tell tale sign that your brake fluid is low.

Winter Tyres

With rain, sleet, ice, and snow all forecast over December, you may wish to consider swapping your car tyres to something more robust that can handle difficult winter conditions. Winter tyres are designed to perform better in colder weather and contain additional natural rubber material than that of conventional tyres. This allows them to hold much better grip as temperatures begin to drop. This makes them ideal for facing wet or slippery surfaces – such as during heavy rainfall or when its icy. Be sure to do some research on what the best winter tyres for your vehicle may be. If you’re not sure where to start, here are a few of the top tried and tested winter tyres for you to consider:

  1. Avon WV7 Snow
  2. Bridgestone Blizzak
  3. Continental WinterContact
  4. Dunlop Winter Sport
  5. Goodyear UltraGrip Performance

Having The Appropriate Insurance

Another vital safety measure you should have in place all year round, is your breakdown insurance. Witnessing treacherous winter weather time and time again in previous years, we know that accidents can happen. That’s why ensuring you have breakdown insurance in place can give you peace of mind that should the worst happen this winter, you know you’re covered for any eventuality. If you have purchased your car outright, you may also wish to invest in GAP insurance to make sure you’re not out of pocket, due to depreciation, if your car is damaged or written off in an accident this winter.
