Police officers are set to join forces with schoolchildren to ask the question "Are your cars ready for winter?
Road Safety Officer Philip Blake will be visiting youngsters at La Moye School on Thursday to talk to them about why they should be reminding their parents to check their cars ahead of winter.
Following a brief in-class talk about the importance of having your car ready for bad weather a handful of pupils will be heading out, clipboards in hand, to find out how many cars don't have working brake lights, how many people they see driving and using their mobile phone and how many are not wearing their seat belts.
Philip Blake said: "The clocks going back is the ideal time for us to remind people to check their cars are ready for winter.
"It is a simple job but could be the difference between a safe journey and one resulting in an accident.
"We are hoping that once the children see how important working lights are they will go home and remind their parents to check their vehicles.
The States of Jersey advise that you have your vehicle fully serviced before winter starts and have the anti-freeze tested.
If you can't have it serviced, then do your own checks. In particular, check:
Lights are clean and working
Battery is fully charged
Windscreen, wiper blades and other windows are clean and the washer bottle filled with screen wash
Tyre condition, tread depth and pressure (of all the tyres, including the spare)
Brakes are working well
Fluids are kept topped up, especially windscreen wash (to the correct concentration to prevent it freezing), anti-freeze and oil
