It is difficult to see pedestrians in wet foggy conditions, so drive slower when you see people standing by the side of the road, as you never know what they may do.

Spring brings cyclists back on the roads, so exercise your usual precautions.

Like humans, animals are much more active in spring than in winter. Look out for animals that cross the roads, especially around dawn and dusk when visibility is generally poorer. If you see one animal on or beside the road, assume that there’s more around too.

Wash the underbody of your vehicle regularly to prevent the salt on the roads from causing rust and corrosion.

If you take good care of yourself and your vehicle through the spring, you will stay safer to enjoy the upcoming summer.
