As careful driving improves your safety on the road and can help to prolong the life of your vehicle, why not make your New Year resolution to improve your driving skills?
Cold winter weather can put strain on car batteries, especially older batteries, so it is not surprising that they are the top cause of roadside breakdowns in winter. When temperatures drop, batteries can struggle to accept charge and this means that charging the battery takes a longer time – sometimes longer than we actually use the car for!

Tyres are susceptible to damage on the road and it is important that you are prepared!
