Winter Driving Workshops
Transport for Buckinghamshire is well on the way to preparing for the winter weather and one of the services offered to residents is to gain the knowledge and skills to help them drive safely during the winter months.
Buckinghamshire can be prone to experiencing micro climates, which means an unexpected variation from the surrounding conditions and we can encounter these more during the winter. For example meeting icy conditions where tree coverage has not allowed the sun to melt the ground or pockets of mist and fog near water. By reading the clues provided by road signs and our environment we can become more hazard aware and prepare for these diversities.
To help motorists read the environment and adjust their driving accordingly, the Road Safety Team offer residents the opportunity to attend a Winter Driving Workshop. The workshops are offered in partnership with STS Tyre Pros garages at Aylesbury, Chesham and High Wycombe during November.
Workshops include a presentation by a former Class 1 police response driver on how to handle vehicles on ice and snow and garage technicians show motorists how to conduct basic checks on their vehicles to reduce the likelihood of them becoming one of the 18,000 winter breakdown statistics on Buckinghamshire roads.
The workshops take place on:
Tuesday 19th November 2013 at 511 London Road, High Wycombe HP11 1EP
Thursday 21st November 2013 at Amersham Road, Chesham HP15 1NG
Thursday 28th November 2013 at Park Street, Aylesbury HP20 1DX
The workshops start at 7 pm and last for two hours and cost £10 a place which includes a car safety pack.
To book and pay please email email@example.com or telephone 0845 2302882 or go online to http://www.transportforbucks.net/Road-Safety/Winter-driving-workshops.aspx

HAVE YOUR SAY
"As you may be aware, the County Council, like other public organisations has been receiving less funding from government, which has meant we have had to dramatically change the way we operate.
We have already started delivering some of our services in a different way and working more with third party organisations. This has helped us to save over £85 million over the last four years; however we still need to make further savings.
Please take this opportunity to have your say. Last year we had a very low response rate from parish and town councils. It is really important that you give us your views as they will be considered when deciding our priorities for next year. Please complete the short form attached and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can complete the survey online on www.buckscc.gov.uk/budget.
We are also asking residents to complete a separate survey which includes additional questions around Council Tax increases for next year. We would really appreciate your help in raising awareness of this survey to residents, which can be completed online on www.buckscc.gov.uk/budget. Hard copies of the survey can be made available to residents by contacting our contact centre on 0845 370 8090. Please do all you can to promote the consultation by advertising the consultation in your newsletters, notice boards or websites.
Parishes are asked to complete the form by the 2 December 2013, residents by the 18th November 2013.
A summary of the results will be presented on the have your say page of our website (www.buckscc.gov.uk/haveyoursay). If you wish to speak to someone about the survey, please call us on 0845 370 8090 or email email@example.com."
