Women motorists to follow safety advice?
Female drivers looking to stay safe over the coming days might want to follow advice from the Highways Agency regarding motoring in wintry conditions.
The past few days have seen parts of the UK fall victim to snow and sleet showers, with the Met Office forecasting that this could continue - especially in parts of England and the Midlands.
When the snowy conditions have gone, however, they are likely to be replaced by a widespread frost, the weather experts have predicted.
The Highways Agency has said that it plans to treat affected roads but is calling upon motorists not to take unnecessary risks and make sure they have supplies and warm clothes in their vehicles.
Additionally, if they really must make journeys in bad conditions, drivers should be aware that stopping distances can be longer in icy weather and should try to drive in high gears to avoid wheelspin, the agency adds.
