It has come to that time of year again where the weather is starting to become more miserable. The temperatures are dropping, the rain is getting heavier, it is getting darker earlier and the winds are getting stronger.
The road conditions can be really
challenging, especially in the winter. It becomes more difficult for drivers as
there is a lot to consider when planning a journey during bad weather.
The met office has listed a number of
tips that they recommend when driving in these conditions.
Choices and planning ahead
Even moderate rain can reduce your ability to
see and be seen. A good rule of thumb is ‘if it’s time for your wipers,
it’s time to slow down’.
If heavy downpours are expected, avoid starting
your journey until it clears.
If you can, choose main roads, where you are
less likely to be exposed to fallen branches and debris and flooding.
Use dipped headlights if visibility is
Gusts of wind can unsettle vehicles – grip your
steering wheel firmly with both hands. This is particularly important when
planning to overtake.
Keep an eye out for gaps between trees,
buildings or bridges over a river or railway – these are some of the
places you are more likely to be exposed to side winds. Ensure that you
maintain enough room either side of your vehicle so you can account for it
being blown sideways.
Roads will be more slippery than usual in wet
weather – be sure to give yourself more time to react when approaching a
hazard. Increase your following gap to at least four seconds from the
moving traffic in front.
Keep your eyes peeled on the road at all times
as spray from other vehicles can suddenly reduce your visibility. Remember
it affects others too, so anticipate their actions and be prepared.
What to do when the road is
On flooded roads, think before driving through
deep water; don’t stop in standing water, and drive through the highest
section of the road slowly. If there is any doubt don’t enter it.
Once you have managed to drive through check
your brakes and dry them out as quickly as possible – a light touch of the
brakes whilst still moving should do the trick.
Breakdown is also more common throughout the winter period. If you are
unfortunate enough to be involved in a breakdown over the winter, just remember
we are here 24/7, 365 days a year. Let us take the strain as one call to us can
start the ball rolling to get you back on the road as quickly as possible. Our breakdown includes:
Claims, we have been dealing with road traffic accidents claims for 25 years.
Before summer, we decided that it was time for a change and rebranded to MIS
Group. To celebrate the launch of our new branding we ran a competition that
offered drivers the chance to win a car for a year! In order to enter and get
your hands on a Kia Sportage 1.76 CRDi, with insurance included, the public had
to enter either via Facebook, Instagram or on our website.
influencer and Cool FM’s Paulo Ross launched the competition for us by taking
the competition car on a road trip and documenting his journey to his followers
on Instagram. And it was one of his followers who entered and won!
Julie Phillips, a Mental Health Nurse from Belfast is our lucky winner of a Kia Sportage for a year, plus insurance with AXA NI arranged by Hughes Insurance. Paulo joined us to deliver the car to Julies home along with our Operations Director Jonathan Ogilby & Marketing Executive Cortney Rowan. Health to drive Julie!!
We would like to thank everyone who entered our competition. Check out our pages on social media to keep up to date with what we are doing.
Reminiscing this time last year when we had our “Big
reveal” for Hope House Ireland.
As you all know from following us on our journey, unfortunately we lost our Director Alan Baillie last year to cancer. His chosen charity was Hope House Ireland. Hope House was founded by Dawn and Roy McConnell who also battled cancer in their own lives. They both decided to create the most beautiful place for cancer patients and their loved ones to come for a short period of time. From experience, they believe the best thing to do is to remove yourself from normal everyday life and take a few days break to adjust to the changes a cancer diagnosis brings.
As this was Alan’s chosen charity, we decided as a Company to do something to raise money together. On 26th May 2018, six of our staff members took on the challenge of our Cycle of Hope, cycling 400 miles (Whitehead- Cork) across Ireland. Of course, they carried the ‘Flag of Hope’ with them the whole way to Cork in honour of every single person who has fought a battle with cancer.
The same month, most of the MIS team took part in the 40-mile cycle challenge to raise money for Hope House. Everyone was very committed and trained in their spare time, whether it was lunch time on the office stationary bike or in their spare time at home when they went out on their own bikes. It was an activity that motivated everyone and was something different to do together as a team for an even more special reason.
It’s hard to believe our “Big reveal” was this time last year when we announced to Hope House that we had raised £145,000. We couldn’t believe it ourselves. Our MIS team, family and friends had managed to do something so special and donated their time and money to this amazing project that means a lot to the company. It was an absolute honour for us as a company to support Hope House Ireland.
One year later……We held a Hope House company BBQ over the weekend. It was lovely to have members of staff up to see the progress on the house and to catch up with Dawn and her team. Our relationship continues as we have some big plans in the works for the future. Keep an eye out for what our next company project with them will be. #teamhope #misforyou
