GIVE YOURSELF MORE TIME
Allow plenty of time for your journey. You'll need extra time to clear snow or ice from your car, and to warm it up. You could be breaking the law by travelling with snow covering your car, specifically your mirrors and windows, so make sure you you give yourself time to clear it all off.
- Make sure you turn your (dipped) headlights on when driving in heavy snow, so other cars can see you. Be aware that snow makes the environment bright, and this can fool auto-headlights. If visibility becomes very poor, then use your fog lamps as well, remembering to turn them off when conditions improve.
- If a road hasn't been gritted, then be aware of driving in the tracks of other cars. Snow can become compacted and icy as a result.
