Police ‘Get ready for winter’ campaign begins

Northern Constabulary is taking part in the national “Get ready for winter” Campaign this weekend.

The awareness raising weekend began this morning and concludes on Hallowe’en.

One of the key messages Police want to get across this winter is for people to change their driver behaviour to that which is appropriate for winter driving.

A police spokesman said: “We are now in the winter months and people should prepare themselves for conditions on the roads to worsen.

“They should ensure their tyres have sufficient tread, that their screen wash is topped up and that their battery is in full working order.”

Winter further highlights the importance and necessity of having an up to date MOT certificate to ensure your vehicle is in the best possible condition during inclement weather conditions.
