'Snow socks' just the ticket on roads

today I used a set of snow socks (winter tyres) and was able to drive with no problems for the first time since the snow began. Given the conditions we have had, more drivers should know how useful they can be.

The Government should legislate to make every vehicle carry these for use in snowy conditions. This could be checked in the NCT and would be a lot more beneficial for everyone than the current checks on registration letter size and the darkness of tinted windows.
