Stay safe, make sure your vehicle is ready for the harsher weather.

Large parts of the UK saw storm Christoph last week, as well as lots of snow fall over the weekend, both of which look to be the start of a string of severe weather fronts.

Although the snow might not last for long, there are risks associated with this. The snow could partially melt and re-freeze if the temperature drops again, making slippery road surfaces. Or the snow could melt altogether and present a risk of flooding to some areas. Where this happens, drivers can expect an increased risk of 'aquaplaning,' or 'hydroplaning' which effects the grip of your tyres, leading to a loss of control and potentially serious incident.

With this in mind, it is really important that drivers make sure their vehicles are fully prepared for these weather conditions to continue.

Aquaplaning - what to do

A survey revealed that 80% of drivers were aware of aquaplaning, but many were not aware of how to regain control once it happens. To regain control, you should:

  • Gently lift your foot off of the accelerator.
  • Allow the speed of your vehicle to slow naturally to allow tyres to re-grip the road.
  • Ensure there is plenty of distance between you and the other vehicles around you.

Reduce the risk

Make sure you check your tyres regularly, especially before you leave home in tougher conditions. Other things you should do:

  • Drive safely - slower speeds, distance between you and other vehicles.
  • Check your tyres - make sure they have an adequate tread depth.
