To ensure you have a safe journey whatever the weather, take a trip to Halfords and try out our following extreme weather motoring solutions:
1. Be safe - Consider if your journey is necessary. Check the local and national weather forecasts before you set off. Where possible do not travel. If you feel you need to travel, set off as early as possible. Tell someone at your destination what time you expect to arrive.
10. Easy does it - Drive conservatively, and watch out for compacted snow. Avoid any sudden moves or sharp braking. Also watch out for Gritters. They are a good indication that ice is forecast for the following day in a particular area. Your tyres will also appear quieter when travelling on ice so listen carefully.
