Date Posted:17/11/2015

Milton Keynes CouncilMilton Keynes Council is holding their annual ‘Get Ready for Winter’ event at intu Milton Keynes on Friday 20 November between 11am and 3pm.

The Council’s Road Safety, Sustainable Transport and Highway teams along with our contractor Ringway will be on hand to give people advice on topics like:

  • how to check vehicles to make sure they are safe in winter weather
  • tyre safety
  • sustainable transport options
  • gritting the road network

A tyre company will be offering advice on winter tyres and how to check your tread depth using a 20p piece

The driving simulator vehicle ‘Oscar’ will be there so you can test your driving skills in different road conditions and free winter driving kits will be handed out.

One of the gritting vehicles will be on display as well as winter safety videos, giveaways plus advice from the Thames Valley Police and Bucks Fire & Rescue on winter safety.

Cllr Matt Clifton, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Road Safety and Transport said, “ I would encourage all drivers to try and attend one of these events to get some good advice about keeping safe on the roads this winter.”

If you can’t make this date we will also be holding another winter safety event at:

Kingston Shopping Centre*
Friday 27 November
11am – 3pm
