Winter driving tips: Prepare yourself and your car [infographic]

Of all the driving seasons, winter is the one requiring most care and preparation if you want to stay safe.

A friend of mine who drives a cab in London told me last weekend that he sees minor accidents daily, all because people haven’t prepared for the change in weather and road conditions that change with it.

The numbers speak for themselves. In 2012 over 5000 people were injured due to winter road accidents and AA took 500 claims in the first four days of January alone. 45% of these were attributed to snow and icy conditions!

It all comes down to preparing yourself and your car. If your car is ready for the snow and you are continuing to drive like it is still summer, then it is very likely you will end up in an accident.

There are lot of useful tips to stay safe during winter months.  Comparethemarket.com has put together a very good and easy to read infographic, that you can see below with basic steps you can take to prepare yourself and your car for winter driving.
