Iam Offers Winter Driving Tips
Prestige car drivers will want to stay as safe as possible over the winter period and they have been offered some handy tips from the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM).
The organisation recommended motorists double or perhaps even triple their normal stopping distance from the vehicle in front.
It also suggested using dipped headlights in falling snow to make cars more visible to others, pedestrians in particular.
Fog lights should only go on if necessary once conditions improve, as they can dazzle other drivers, the IAM advised.
"Start gently from stationary, avoiding high revs. If you get yourself into a skid the main thing to remember is to take your foot off the accelerator and steer, never use the brake," commented Peter Rodger, IAM chief examiner.
During the coldest of seasons, drivers should also watch out for the combination of low winter sun and dirty windscreens, which can lead to greater risk of dangerous dazzle, the IAM recently warned.

Friday 24th October marked Breast Cancer Care’s ‘Pink Friday’. In aid of the event, Sytner Group Head Office hosted the ultimate pink day; with ‘wear something pink’ dress down, a bake-off and a charity raffle. The bake-off invited any budding bakers to make their best cake creations and then enter them into a competition; first prize was a bottle of Moet Pink champagne. The competition was judged by our Group Managing Director, Darren Edwards, before slices of the cakes were sold alongside a plethora of sweets and other confectionaries throughout the afternoon.
