We hope that you are all having a wonderful festive time. Not too hungover or regrets for eating too many mince pie and listening to too much Michael Buble?

The weather has certainly been very seasonal, we’ve had sub zero temperatures, snow, sleet, and black ice! Some of the most dangerous driving conditions possible…as we Scots know only too well. We hope you won’t object to a little nagging from Strathclyde Windscreens about some extra precautions you can take to prepare for any weather..

So with your safety in mind here is a list of items that you should keep in your car, in case of emergencies;

  • hi-vis vest
  • first aid kit
  • de-icer and a plastic scraper; or even a homemade vinegar/water spray to spray on your window at night as a preventative measure
  • phone and charger
  • hazard warning triangle
  • shovel
  • tow rope
  • welly boots
  • torch with batteries
  • something warm to wear and a blanket
  • non-perishable food and drink
  • jumps leads
  • salt
  • details and phone numbers for emergencies

Also bear in mind that any cracks or chips in your windscreen are going to deteriorate much more quickly in this weather, so keep Strathclyde Windscreens number in your phonebook along with your insurance company and roadside/breakdown service. We are available 24/7 and can repair or replace very quickly regardless of your Christmas and holiday plans. We have a mobile service so can often come to wherever you are for a repair or, as we have premises all over Scotland, you could just pop in to see us.
