Buckinghamshire can be prone to micro-climates, which means an unexpected variation from the surrounding conditions, and these are more frequent during the winter months. The Road Safety Team is offering a Winter Driving Workshop in partnership with STS Tyre Pros garages at Aylesbury, Chesham and High Wycombe during November.
Workshops include a presentation by a former Class 1 police response driver on how to handle vehicles on ice and snow, and garage technicians showing motorists how to conduct basic checks on their vehicles to reduce the likelihood of them becoming one of the 18,000 winter breakdown statistics on Buckinghamshire roads.
The workshops take place on:
- Tuesday 19th November 2013 at 511 London Road, High Wycombe HP11 1EP
- Thursday 21st November 2013 at Amersham Road, Chesham HP15 1NG
- Thursday 28th November 2013 at Park Street, Aylesbury HP20 1DX
Starting at 7pm and lasting for two hours, the workshops cost £10, which includes a car safety pack.To book and pay please email firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone 0845 2302882, or book online at www.buckscc.gov.uk/Winterdrivingworkshops. I’ll be voting in the Commons at 19:00 or I would be there.
