Motorists are being urged to take care while travelling in the snow this weekend.
The AA has issued some advice for drivers:
- Plan routes to favour major roads which are more likely to have been cleared and gritted.
- Wear comfortable, dry shoes for driving. Cumbersome, snow-covered boots will slip on the pedals.
- Pull away in second gear, easing your foot off the clutch gently to avoid wheel-spin.
- If you have to use brakes then apply them gently. Release the brakes and de-clutch if the car skids.
