RAC gives advice to drivers with arrival of Storm Barra

RAC Breakdown spokesperson Rod Dennis said:

“As Storm Barra batters Britain, drivers need to really have their wits about them to stay safe. We urge drivers to stick to major routes wherever possible, slow down to the right speed for the conditions and take particular care when passing high-sided vehicles to avoid being buffeted off course. It’s also vital vehicles are ‘winter road ready’ – tyres should be in top condition with plenty of tread and properly inflated. Under the bonnet, oil and coolant levels should be checked and screenwash topped up. Our advice to drivers to drivers is to not skimp on a screenwash that protects down to well below minus 10c, so there’s no chance it can let them down.”

Advice on driving in windy conditions is available on the RAC Drive website.
