Prepare car for wintry weather

Have your say

MOTORISTS are being warned to ensure their vehicles are prepared for wintry weather and to carry an emergency kit while on the move.

The plea has been made by officials from South Yorkshire’s councils and the Highways Agency, which manages motorways and roads including the Woodhead Pass.

Drivers are urged to ensure they have reliable batteries, working lights and anti-freeze in the radiator.

An emergency kit should have warm clothing, a shovel and jump leads.
