Winter Driving

Winter brings about colder weather, snow and ice.

All these things can result in dangerous driving conditions.

Severe weather can be both frightening and dangerous for travellers. Preparing for winter driving conditions can mean installing winter tires, having an emergency kit in your vehicle, driving carefully and conducting winter maintenance on your vehicle. CAA has compiled advice and tips from experts in this field to help you stay safe this winter driving season.
