10 tips for a safe ride!

  1. Winter tyres assure better breaking power and ease of driving in case of frost, snow and especially ice. In short better stability and control. However be careful of a false sense of security. Always drive as if you did not have winter tyres on your vehicle.
  2. Especially take into account other drivers. Drive with sufficient anticipation and at all times prevent making too abrupt maneuvers.
  3. Slow down in a straight line before taking a turn. Do not slow down or speed up in a turn.
  4. Short drives are very hard on the battery. The oil is very polluting and the engine is continuously turning in the heating up phase. This could complicate the next start of the engine.
  5. For the Winter sport enthusiasts : You never know where and when you can be stranded due to breakdown or accident (monster traffic jams, closed down mountain passes,…) Anticipate this and always have food and drink (water), an extra can of de-icer , warm clothes and blankets. A charged battery pack for the cell phone could also prove its usefulness ! Practice applying snow chains before you leave.
  6. Check the sites of renowned automobile clubs for the local laws in Europe before you cross borders : VAB , Touring  , ANWB
  7. Although not legally required in Belgium it is recommended to have as many fluorescent jackets as there are seats in the car.
  8. A charged flashlight, starter cables, a tow cable and a couple of work gloves have proved their use for many of us… this could even be an original gift for under the Christmas tree.

  9. Create a contact in your phone containing the numbers of roadside assistance services

  10. Before you leave decide if it is truly necessary to drive…each kilometer not driven is a safe kilometer.
