RAC Breakdown Issues Warning and Advice to Motorists
In light of the dropping temperatures, RAC Breakdown spokesperson Alice Simpson has voiced concerns over the increased likelihood of car breakdowns. “Cold weather is the nemesis of older car batteries,” Simpson explains, emphasising that the current conditions could expose weaknesses in vehicle batteries.
She advises drivers, especially those with older vehicles, to have their cars checked by reputable mechanics or garages without delay.
Alice also stresses the importance of being prepared for winter driving conditions. She suggests that drivers pack winter gear, including extra warm clothes, food, drink, and a fully charged phone powerbank, to mitigate the risks of being stranded in cold weather.
