  • Use your windscreen wipers
  • Know how to turn your front and rear fog lights on and off and use them
  • Be vigilant of other vehicles especially those without their headlights on
  • Do not follow someones rear lights, ensure you allow adequate space and only travel as fast as conditions allow

  • Turn off your radio and wind your window down to listen for vehicles when pulling out at a junction
