The Hazards of winter

While snow and ice present the most obvious hazard to motorists, most drivers change their driving style to suit these conditions. However, cold, damp roads are visually no different to wet conditions in the warmer months and drivers tend not to adjust their driving style.

A tyre's performance though, is significantly reduced by this combination of conditions, making cold damp roads one of the highest safety risks to drivers. Winter and tyres, commuters and business motorists are on the roads in coldest conditions in the early morning and evening. It is a proven fact that a car braking at 60mph on a wet road at 5°C stopped five metres shorter, equivalent to more than one car length, when fitted with winter weather tyres. Viezu are offering a free winter tyre check for all drivers, irrespective of whether they fit winter weather tyres or not. Regular checks provide the best safety throughout the winter months and it is advisable to ensure your thread in winter tread is well above the legal minimum of 1.6mm across the central 3/4 of the tyre, around its entire circumference.
