Thames Valley Police have released the following  two videos on their YouTube channel, giving drivers tips on how to drive safely in icy and snowy conditions. With Beaconsfield experiencing freezing temperatures it would be a good idea to watch them. The information could be life saving.

The videos have been released today (3/2), due to the low temperatures and wintery conditions which have been forecast for the country over the coming month.

The first video features Insp Paul Winks, from Bicester Roads Policing base, and gives drivers advice on what safety checks to make to your car and what things to pack in your car before setting off on a journey in icy or snowy conditions.

The second shows Sgt Pete Jell, also from Bicester, giving drivers tips on how to drive in snowy or icy weather, such as what to do if you get into a skid.

Insp Paul Winks said: "Obviously in adverse weather conditions, we would advise people not to drive unless absolutely necessary, but acknowledge that people will need to travel and want them to be as prepared as possible before they set off. This short, two minute video gives advice on what things to check on your car and what things to pack before you set off.

"Sgt Pete Jell said: "According to recent weather forecasts, we will be experiencing low temperatures, ice and possibly snow in the coming weeks. This type of weather obviously makes the roads very treacherous and the video gives tips on how to drive in these conditions to try and reduce the chances of having an accident."   


Both videos can be viewed at the Thames Valley Police YouTube channel:
