The Peugeot 2008 is an excellent car for driving in the city and out on the open highway. Like many modern cars, it has active safety features that could help to avoid a collision, and itís safer for the occupants than an older car would be. Despite this, any car can be affected by colder weather conditions particularly snow. Getting your car ready for the winter will go a long way in keeping you safe in colder conditions, especially if you're tackling winter sports. Here are three tips that will make sure that youíre prepared for driving during the winter months.

1. Put Together a Car Snow Kit

Any kind of cold weather has a real knack for starting electrical and mechanical issues with your car. This can cause you to get stuck, slide off the road and it may be necessary to get yourself out of trouble. It makes good sense to be prepared for the worst, and a good way to start is to put together a car snow kit for your boot. The kit will be handy to free yourself at it should include items, such as de-icer, a basic tool kit, road flares, a reflective warning triangle, a tow rope and a shovel. Seasoned snow drivers often carry a bag of cat litter too; this is great for putting under a tyre to improve traction. Itís also a good idea to take wheel chocks because a handbrake can fail or freeze up in the snow.

2. Fit Some Snow Chains

Snow chains may be compulsory in certain alpine areas, and if youíre directed to fit them, they will need to be installed. There may be snow chain fitting bays in the area. If there isnít a bay available, you need to find a safe spot to park with excellent visibility. If you have an all wheel drive vehicle, you may not need to fit snow chains in certain areas. However, it may be a good idea to take snow chains anyway in case you need them later.

3. Assemble a Cold Weather Kit

In an emergency, you may find that youíre stranded in cold temperatures. Having an emergency kit can really help you to survive this situation and get some help. You will need a bag that you can throw in your car boot and that you can take with you in an emergency. The bag should be packed with useful items, such as a multi tool, a first aid kit, a torch, spare batteries for all your devices, a reflective emergency black, some food and water supplies, a battery powered radio and something to start a fire.
