It’s most definitely that time of year now, where the roads are becoming increasingly harder to navigate because of rain, ice, and – lately, even fog, and after recently breaking down in Brighton during rush hour in the dark and rain I thought I would share some essentials to keep you safe on the roads this winter with the #CarCareClub. To help spread car safety knowledge, LV sent me a car kit with all the essentials that you would need to tackle any driving situation, including a High Vis Jacket, Tow Rope, Torch, Portable Charger, Ice Scraper, Hand Warmers, a snuggly Blanket and some amazing festive Yankee Candle Car Air Fresheners.
After my recent breaking down episode, I would say my biggest tip is to make sure you have a) suitable car insurance and b)decent breakdown cover before you even leave the house, as I learnt the hard way. I also learnt that yes a high vis jacket is super handy, but so is a yellow triangle in case you break down and then the hazards don’t work either. I learnt the hard way, however a nice policeman came along at the right time and helped me out, pheww. But I think that if I had had all these handy bits at the time I may have been a little less stressed, as it did get chilly and my phone did slowly start to die whilst waiting for the AA man!!
