Tyres are an area of emphasis that Volvo is advising businesses to keep an eye on, both in terms of tread depth and whether it’s appropriate to swap out for winter tyres.

The tread depth and overall condition of your tyres can be the difference between stopping in time, or not. Cold conditions are harsh on the roads. As they break up and potholes prevail, those roads become harsh on your tyres. Tyre maintenance is a year-round job that becomes even more important in winter.

Beattie added: “Businesses should remind their company car drivers to take journeys steady in poor conditions. If visibility is reduced or roads are extremely wet or at risk of being icy, unnecessary journeys should be avoided and those who do drive should be more cautious and avoid risky manoeuvres which could lead to skidding.

“We also always advise drivers to carry blankets, extra warm layers of clothing and food and drinks when the weather turns wintry, just in case they or other motorists and their passengers become stranded.”
