What you should buy to get you through worst of the weather
WINTER is upon us and, suddenly, even the simplest of trips can be fraught with problems as the temperature drops, the air is filled with icy rain or snow and the road becomes a challenge worthy of Torvill and Dean.
To make it worse, the shorter days mean that a great deal of commuting time behind the wheel is spent in the dark. Staying home when the bad weather strikes is the best answer, but for most of us, that’s simply not practical. So, thinking ahead is the key to winter safety, making sure that you’re well equipped to cope with the challenges you’re likely to encounter.
We’ve used our experience of aftermarket testing to come up with a list of 15 essential products for winter driving. Some will get you out of trouble when it occurs; some will help you avoid it in the first place. Prices are from online sources.
