Winter is coming! The evenings are getting darker and temperatures are dipping and with it driving conditions become much more treacherous.
It’s no coincidence the number of accidents on our roads increase in the cold winter months.
And very year, 24% of weather-related vehicle accidents occur during bad weather, including snow, sleet or ice.
It is important that as a driver, no matter how seasoned, you understand the key issue areas to keep an eye on, in relation to your car and keeping in ship-shape for those winter months.
Even if you feel as though your car is running perfectly fine, it is always a good idea to get a Winter Check – and at just £21.99 for any make or model at Shelbourne Motors in Portadown and Newry, it could be the best investment you make all year.
