Winter Driving Essentials

As a bare minimum you should consider packing the following

  • a blanket, rug or even a sleeping bag
  • a shovel
  • ice scraper and de-icer
  • Torches and batteries
  • Snacks, consider high carb sources like chocolate or cereal bars

If you’re at risk of experiencing severe weather conditions also consider the following
