Check that your tyres have good tread on them to cope with icy and slippery conditions.
Make sure you always have plenty of fuel, if you are caught out, you'll have enough fuel to keep engine running to keep warm.
Always clear snow and ice from the windscreen before driving. It’s also a good idea to clear the bonnet and roof, as the snow can easily slide onto the windscreen whilst driving.
Keep some chocolate and sweets in the car, you never know how long you might be stuck for, chocolate is a great source of energy and could save your life in very extreme conditions.
Try to use your gears when slowing down and just dab the brakes to prevent skidding.
Never turn to sharply, take things slowly it very hard to stop skidding on ice one you’ve started.
The main thing is: GO CAREFUL!!
