Seen the weather forecast? Snow is likely "almost anywhere" over the next week - is your car prepared?
Did you know that not defrosting your windscreen adequately and leaving snow on your vehicle could result in a fine and penalty points on your licence?
With snow predicted to fall “almost anywhere” in the UK within the next week (according to forecasters) it’s worth refreshing your knowledge on how to safely prepare your frozen vehicle before begin your morning commute.
Section 229 of the Highway Code outlines how drivers should prepare their vehicle before they set off after adverse weather conditions. It says:
“You MUST be able to see, so clear all snow and ice from all your windows. You MUST ensure that lights are clean and number plates are clearly visible and legible.”
“Make sure the mirrors are clear and the windows are demisted thoroughly.”
Spend an extra few minutes brushing snow from your roof and bonnet, scraping the ice and warming the car before you set off!

Car Leasing Review - The Volkswagen Tiguan
The Volkswagen Tiguan is spacious, comfortable and good to drive. Universally well reviewed, the Tiguan boasts a range of strong, smooth engines and offers more style and a higher driving position than an estate or ‘typical’ family saloon.
The Volkswagen Tiguan offers 5-seats unless you go for the All Space edition and all models have a well thought out interior and infotainment system is reviewed as one of the best there is.
The Tiguan offers ample space but with it’s fantastic visibility it’s surprisingly easy to manoeuvre and park.
As a motorway vehicle it is comfortable and quiet but is ‘nippy’ enough to feel comfortable around town or on country roads. VW’s safety credentials are excellent so you can rest easy that your family is in a safe car.
