Being prepared for every season
Be prepared for all types of weather
If you’re going on a long journey, check your tyres before you leave. Make sure you have a healthy tread depth – this means at least the legal minimum of 1.6mm – and that your tyres are correctly inflated. Don’t forget to check your spare, too.
In some countries, it’s mandatory to keep first aid kids and warning triangles in your car at all times. It’s also important to carry an emergency kit with flares, a bottle of water, jumper cables, a blanket, a high-visibility vest, paper towels, a torch, an in-car mobile phone charger, and washer fluid. If you experience extreme cold or snow where you live, also bring some spare clothes and blankets. Your local automobile organization can inform you of legal requirements for vehicle emergency kits in your area.
