Between Friday the 13th and Sunday the 15th Green Flag are predicting a whopping 81,571 breakdowns due to the treacherous conditions. Don’t be one of them…
Friday is predicted to be the worst day for predicted breakdowns, at 36,212 – maybe it’s something to do with Friday the 13th and it being the unluckiest day of the year, or maybe it’s just a coincidence. Saturday is predicted to bring 24,771 breakdowns with Sunday seeing 20,588.
With snow and icy conditions forecast across the country Green Flag is urging drivers to only make essential journeys to avoid the treacherous conditions where possible. If you do have to hit the roads, make sure you’re prepared for the worst, try to ensure you have the following items with you no matter what distance you are travelling.
Mobile phone and charger
Blanket and warm clothes
Water and snacks
Sturdy boots and a warm coat
