Miles and miles of driving tips #StaySafe

Stay Safe

With unpredictable weather conditions it’s important to prepare your vehicle for whatever Mother Nature throws at us. Find out more in our Be Prepared – Winter Driving.

What to do if your vehicle breaks down:

  • Ensure you have breakdown cover and keep the number of your provider stored in your mobile phone. Call then as soon as you can.
  • It’s useful to have a reflective jacket, torch and warm waterproof clothes in the vehicle
  • It’s useful to have a mobile phone with GPS capability in case you don’t know exactly where you are
  • Always exit the vehicle through the doors on the left hand side and if there is a safety barrier stand behind it – it’s important to stay well away from moving traffic
  • Don’t try to make repairs yourself, wait for a rescue vehicle
  • Be patient but if you feel threatened sit in the passenger seat, lock the door and phone 999

Make sure you’ve got everything you need in the vehicle before you set out, in case the unexpected happens:

– Ice Scraper
– Torch and spare batteries
– Warm clothes and blankets
– Boots
– First aid kit
– Jump leads
– Shovel and reflective warning sign
– Road Maps
– Sunglasses
– Mobile phone charger
