Vehicle Safety

Alert message sent 13/12/2018 14:14:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

EXTRA CARE ON COLD & FROSTY MORNINGS:- Never leave keys in the ignition and doors unlocked when your car is unattended, even if it is only for a couple of minutes, whether your vehicle is sitting on your driveway or on the roadside.
Allow an extra few minutes to defrost and stay with the vehicle while it warms up. Alternatively, use a de-icer spray and windscreen scraper to clear your windows and lights.
Always ensure your view is completely clear before moving off.
In a situation where a driver has left a vehicle unattended, insurers may argue that reasonable care has not been taken . This invalidates an insurance claim. Victims are then faced with the loss of their vehicle with no means of replacement, even though they are fully insured.
