Car finance buyers urged to prepare for winter

It may seems strikingly obvious to say we should all be careful on the roads this winter, but the truth is, last winter saw a huge increase in crashes, accidents, and ‘near-misses’.

It may seems strikingly obvious to say we should all be careful on the roads this winter, but the truth is, last winter saw a huge increase in crashes, accidents, and ‘near-misses’. Even the best driver can be caught out by the pesky ice, so it’s best to know what you’re driving on and how your driving style affects the car.

Car loans and car finance buyers are being urged to watch out for wet leaves this autumn. According to the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM), the leaves that are currently dropped can cause havoc when combined with rain and your tyres.

Peter Rodger, chief examiner at the IAM, said: "If you live in an area where wildlife roam, take extra care and remember that deer tend to move in groups; if one runs out look for others doing the same and reduce your speed in readiness."
