❄️WINTER DRIVING TIP #1❄️
Keep your LIGHTS CLEAN 💡
With darker mornings and evenings already here along with dangerous driving conditions and debris from wet and snowy road surfaces our lights can be less than optimal. Make sure your headlights, indicators and fog lights are clean and ready for your journey!
Dont forget to replace any dull or broken lights as soon as possible!

Pay attention to DASHBOARD WARNING LIGHTS 🚘 🚨 🚦 ‼️
Keep an eye on your dashboard during the winter period, we know its easy to focus on fuel and speed but making sure your dashboard isn’t highlighting a possible issue with your vehicle is critical especially in the festive season.
Tyre pressure, oil levels and radiator temperature amongst others can be detrimental to a journey especially when the weather turns for the the worst. Keep an eye out and keep on top of your vehicle maintenance!

ASSESS YOUR TYRES 🚙 💥
Making sure you have enough tread on your tyres is essential for safe journeys in winter weather, especially with family visits and shopping trips in the festive season.
The legal limit for the majority of driver vehicles on the roads is 1.6mm.

TOP UP YOUR ANTIFREEZE ❄️
It’s important that during cold weather Antifreeze is topped up because it is used to protect it from freezing in cold weather 🥶 It also acts as the key agent in providing heat inside the car’s cabin. So make sure before long family trips to check your levels!

TEST YOUR BATTERY 🔋
Cold weather can take its tole on your car battery. It requires more energy to get your car going in colder temperatures!
We’d suggest having your electrical system tested, including your battery and alternator you can do this by going to one of many local retailers such as your #local #cardealership @kwikfit_uk or @ halfords_uk
