Motoring expert – and housewives favourite – Quentin Willson teamed up with Goodyear tyres for a Web TV show earlier today to talk about tips to help motorists stay safe this winter.
Obviously tyres featured heavily in the show, which focused on driving on snow and ice and how to navigate your vehicle while skidding around in low visibility.
Quentin joined Goodyear Dunlop PR support manager Kate Rock to take part in the show which was based on a OnePoll survey of 4,000 motorists that our collective phobia of driving in winter conditions.
The research also showed that millions of us continue to drive in terrible British winter conditions without really preparing ourselves for the journey ahead.
Unlike other European countries like Germany where winter driving is almost an artform and regulated by the Government, in the UK most of us don’t change to winter tyres, and most of us have never been given lessons in driving in snow and ice.
Furthermore, with a severe cold snap approaching once more this year, how many of us have started packing an emergency kit to chuck in the boot in case we break down and get stuck in freezing conditions for hours on end?
If you missed the show (which you probably did…..), don’t worry, we’re looking out for a link that will let you watch it at your leisure.
