A.S. Mondeos of Wednesbury ( Ford Spares ) have put together the following Top Ten tips for the motorists of Walsall to adjust to winter driving conditions - Be safe this winter with A.S. Mondeos of Wednesbury.

  • Check your brakes - make sure they are in good condition and that there
    is sufficient brake fluid.
  • Ensure that both the tyre condition and pressure are correct.
  • If there is snow and ice, use high gears to reduce the need for sudden
    deceleration or acceleration.
  • Always make sure the windscreen is clean and clear, and that there is
    plenty of screenwash.
  • Allow extra time for journeys - try to avoid rushing.
  • In fog watch your speed - fog can give the impression of slow motion in
    oncoming traffic.
  • Keep your distance - don't get too close to the car in front.
  • Always take a mobile phone with you in case of emergencies, but only
    use it when your vehicle is stationary and the engine is turned off.
  • Make sure you know where your front and rear fog lights are - and use
    them in severe fog.
  • Driving in the dark should be avoided where possible, as the number of
    accidents increases in lower light levels
