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.
