Stay safe this winter.
Winter has arrived in full force; dark mornings, darker nights, falling temperatures and a heavy dose of rain. There’s nothing better than curling up on the sofa with a blanket and watching festive films with the family when the weather outside is miserable. Sometimes, for whatever reason, it’s required to leave the comfort of the sofa and actually go outside. I know, rough! Having to go to work and take the kids to school is such a nuisance at times.
Wintery weather makes using the roads even more dangerous than usual due to reduced visibility and reduced traction thanks to wet and icy roads. It can be quite daunting heading out when the roads are covered in ice and thick fog engulfs the landscape. Thankfully, www.chill.ie have just released a really useful e-book giving loads of tips and advice for staying safe on the roads through the winter.
The e-book takes stats from a survey of 750 people which reveals that, in general, people spend more time in their cars in the winter than in the summer but take no extra precautions to account for the dangerous conditions.
All wintery weather makes driving more dangerous, especially ice and snow. The fact that we don’t get much snow in the UK means that when it does occasionally arrive, we are completely unprepared. When the roads are icy, Chill recommend that you drive much slower than normal to allow for increased stopping distances and take extra care when driving round corners.
Check out the e-book for more useful tips to stay safe on the roads this year. It’s dangerous out there! – https://cdn.chill.ie/downloads/Winter-Driving-ebook.pdf
