Young people are among those least prepared for winter driving, according to a new survey from satellite navigation manufacturer Garmin.
The company revealed December 14 that 57 percent of 18-24-year-olds in the UK said they were unprepared for winter driving, despite being the ones likely to cover the most ground.
That's compared to an average of 34 percent across all age ranges that said that they were unprepared, with men slightly more likely to have taken precautions for driving in hazardous Northern Hemisphere winter conditions than women.
A total of just 15 percent said that they were 'very prepared', having taken simple measures such as keeping a blanket in the car, carrying spare windscreen wash, a spade or ensuring their breakdown cover was up-to-date.
