Top safety tips from C&G Services 

On the twelfth day of Christmas, the tip from C&G……………………..

Day 12Be prepared and plan ahead

Besides an ice scraper and de-icer, it’s worth carrying a mobile phone with fully charged battery, torch, first-aid kit, tow rope, blankets, warm coat and boots, jump leads, snow shovel, warning triangle, an old sack or rug and water repellent spray.

Plan routes to favour major roads which are more likely to have been gritted. On long journeys it may be advisable to pack warm beverages and some food. Allow for extra journey time. Better to arrive late than not at all. Allow extra time for your journey.

I hope the 12 Safety Tips from C&G Services have been useful, that’s the last post now until my return in January 2014. So I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and all the best wishes for a fantastic New Year!

Repairs and servicing.

Pay extra attention to the health of your vehicle. a correct mixture of water and antifreeze is essential to prevent breakdowns and it is advisable not to let fuel levels drop too low. a regularly maintained vehicle is less likely to fail on you!

There are usually loads of garages offering Free Winter Health checks this time of year, pop down to your local garage and get your vehicle checked out. Above all, get to where you’re going safely and have fun what ever you’re doing this Christmas and New Year!
