#5...and driving in winter
Winter driving also comes with its dangers. When the weather is bad, don’t forget to put your lights on, and allow for a longer stopping distance (10 times the norm).
If you don't feel safe, pull over when you can and wait for the weather to ease. Make sure you avoid any waterlogged roads, and watch out for oncoming traffic creating a wave that could go into your engine.
Always keep your lights, windscreen and registration plate clean. The AA recommends that your tyres have a minimum of 3mm tread depth in the winter to allow for bad road conditions.
If you have to drive in wintry weather, make sure you've cleared the car of ice or snow and drive slowly and carefully. Also remember to turn your fog lights off when visibility has improved otherwise you'll dazzle other traffic.
