EXTRA CARE ON COLD MORNINGS
With more frosty mornings expected this coming week do have in mind the following:
- Never leave keys in the ignition and doors unlocked when your car is unattended, even if it is only for a couple of minutes, whether the vehicle is sitting on your driveway or on the roadside.
- Allow an extra few minutes to defrost and stay with the vehicle while it warms up. Alternatively, use a de-icer spray and windscreen scraper to clear your windows and lights.
- Always ensure your view is completely clear before moving off.
In a situation where a driver has left a vehicle unattended, insurers may argue that reasonable care has not been taken. This could invalidate an insurance claim.
