Need more traction? 

If you are worried about rear wheel drive cars losing grip in bad weather, icy conditions or the snow of the last few weeks then 4WD is the answer.
BMW offer their new 5 Series with 4 wheel drive or ‘X-Drive‘ as they call it.
A clever system to ensure maximum grip, keeping the car safe with superb traction and all without losing the fundamental driving characteristics the ultimate driving machine has become synonymous with.
The car still delivers the power with a rear wheel bias giving the satisfying push that makes a BMW so rewarding to drive and maintains a 50/50 weight distribution to keep the car feeling balanced.
This balance ensures the car never feels too nose heavy or tail light, never a good combination.
The model pictured is a 520d M-Sport X-Drive saloon in metallic Bluestone
For leasing customers there is still time to avail of the great Sterling offer from BMW -(An increased support over and above the norm) Any BMW registered up to and including 30 March will qualify for the extra €€€€ rebate support.

Top Tips for Winter Driving with Johnson & Perrott Fleet

Driving safely in winter conditions can be challenging for even the most experienced driver. After months of traveling in mild weather, with longer daylight hours, winter conditions can arrive sooner than expected.

In preparation for the upcoming winter weather(Beast from the East), now is the time for fleet managers to talk to drivers about traveling in winter. Below are some winter driving tips to help make sure fleet drivers stay safe on the roads, whatever the weather.

1. Mobility and journey management

  • First, ask yourself if there is an alternative to road travel. If you must travel, make sure your journey is well planned
  • Check that your planned route is clear
  • Allow extra travel time
  • Ensure others are aware of your journey and your expected time of arrival
  • Check local and national weather updates on television, radio or online

2. Vehicle maintenance

  • Keep your vehicle well maintained/serviced and check you have a good battery. Your battery must work much harder in the winter (working lights and wipers, for example) and can fail completely with hardly any warning
  • Tires must have good tread depth and be inflated correctly (including the spare)
  • Check cooling system contains antifreeze at the correct strength
  • Check windscreen wipers and washers are working properly – in cold temperatures use high strength screen-wash
  • Lights must be clean and working

3. Be prepared if you must set out

  • Check to see if you have a full tank of fuel
  • Let someone know your destination and your expected time of arrival
  • Take a mobile phone if you have one, but remember you could break down in a ‘dead area’, so take warm high visibility clothing, hot drinks, food, boots, a torch and shovel as well – it could be a long walk to a phone
  • Ensure vehicle windows, mirrors and lights are clear from mist, frost and snow. Snow and ice reduce what you can see, and can be dangerous to other road users as it falls off your vehicle

4. Plan your route

  • Use main roads as much as you can
  • Allow extra time for your journey
  • Avoid the rush hour to help reduce congestion

5. Drive with caution

  • Drive according to the conditions
  • Reduce speed in poor visibility, where there is snow, or if ice may have formed
  • Use the highest gear possible to help keep control of the vehicle and avoid harsh braking and acceleration
  • Maintain larger safer stopping distances – three seconds between vehicles is for good conditions! A wet road surface means you’ll take twice as long to stop, so you need to be at least six seconds behind the vehicle in front
  • Use dipped headlights in poor visibility and snow, so others can see you!
  • Use rear fog lights in poor visibility but remember to switch them off when conditions improve
  • Watch out for other road users, including motorbikes, pushbikes, pedestrians and children, who may also be having difficulties in bad conditions

6. Know how to handle a breakdown

  • If you get into trouble, stay with your vehicle if possible, until help arrives
  • If you do have to leave your vehicle, make yourself visible to others
  • If you must abandon your vehicle, give local police the details and park safely to avoid obstruction to maintenance vehicles such as snow ploughs when they are trying to treat the roads

7. Prepare for all conditions

Fog is a danger in autumn and winter, and is a major cause of collisions.

  • Slow down, keep your distance, and turn your lights on in fog
  • Drive very slowly using dipped headlights. Use fog lights if visibility is seriously reduced, but remember to switch them off when visibility improves
  • Don’t hang on the tail lights of the vehicle in front – this gives you a false sense of security and means you may be driving too close
  • Don’t speed up suddenly – even if it seems to be clearing, you can suddenly find yourself back in thick fog

Ice, snow and slush drastically reduce the ability of your tires to grip the road, which means that slowing down, speeding up, or changing direction all become hazardous. The trick to driving in these conditions is to be as smooth as possible.

  • Drive slowly, allowing extra room to slow down and stop
  • It can take ten times longer to stop in icy conditions than on a dry road
  • Use the highest gear possible to avoid wheel spin, maneuver gently, and avoid harsh braking and acceleration
  • To brake on ice and snow without locking your wheels, get into a low gear earlier than normal, allow your speed to fall, and use the brake pedal gently
  • If you skid, ease off the accelerator but avoid braking suddenly

Floods. Avoid floodwater completely if you can. If you have no alternative but to enter floodwater:

  • Drive slowly in first gear, but keep the engine speed high by slipping the clutch to stop your vehicle from stalling
  • Drive through the water one vehicle at a time
  • Avoid the deepest water, which is generally near the curb. Don’t attempt to cross if the water seems too deep
  • Test your brakes a few times after you are through the flood before you drive at normal speed

REMEMBER:

  • Give cyclists and motorcyclists extra room in bad weather
  • Dazzle from low winter sun can be dangerous. Carry a pair of sunglasses in the car
  • It takes twice as long to stop on a wet road as it does on a dry one, and up to ten times longer in icy conditions
