DON’T LET THE ‘BEAST FROM THE EAST’ DRIVE YOU TO DISTRACTION
Watch out for wintery roads says Westover Group
With the weather front nicknamed the ‘beast from the east’ and Storm Emma predicted to bring travel chaos, Westover Group is warning local motorists to be prepared for more challenging driving conditions than usual.
“Even if we escape the bulk of the snow here in Dorset and Wiltshire, the freezing conditions that have swept in from Siberia and look set to hang around until the weekend present a whole array of challenges that motorists simply don’t face most of the year, so it’s wise to be prepared,” says Mark Whittam from the Westover Group.
“Whatever type of vehicle you drive, you may face difficulties – especially if you’re travelling further afield. None of the checks we recommend are costly or time consuming but drivers who are organised could save themselves the hassle and cost of a breakdown.
"A bit of forethought and common sense could also make the difference between staying safe and getting into a difficult or dangerous situation.”
Westover has a few top tips to help you stay safe this winter.
If you want to be sure your car is ready to tackle any weather conditions, Westover can carry out a complimentary visual safety check at any one of its showrooms.
