Travel Safe this winter with RUD Snow Chains

November 12, 2014

In many countries the use of snow chains during the winter months is compulsory. For mainland Europe there are snow chain regulations for all vehicles traversing mountain roads during the winter months. For instance, the use of snow chains across France & Italy is not mandatory; snow chains should legally be carried and used as instructed by the local road signs and regulations.

The UK does not currently have snow chain regulations; however do you want to risk your safety or the safety of others over the winter? Weather conditions can deteriorate quickly; snow and ice can appear rapidly turning an ordinary journey into a hazardous one.

Whether you are driving aboard, in the UK or operate an emergency vehicle; the sensible option is to be prepared for the snow and ice this winter. Ensure the safety of yourself and the drivers around you.
