At negative 15 degrees Celcius, battery output is reduced to half its usual power. So if you don’t have enough juice left, you could be stuck. Get your battery checked and avoid the risk of getting stuck in the cold!

Get a set of winter tires:

Winter wiper blades have a rubber or vinyl wrapping which block ice and snow from entering the arms of the blade. This means better flexibility, and less ice build-up and streaks. Much safer for winter driving.

Have your brakes checked:
