Keeping You and Your Passengers Safe this Winter

 

Advice from the AA for You and Your Passengers

Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.  As well as the things you should be carrying on every journey regardless of the weather, you should make up a winter emergency kit to keep in the boot – hopefully you won’t need it but you will be very glad it’s there if you do.

  • Sunglasses – to deal with glare from the sun or snow
