Police are warning motorists to take care ahead of Met Office forecasts for snow.
The county is currently on a yellow warning, which means residents should be prepared for bad weather.
Police are advising motorists to check their tyre pressure, ensure their anti-freeze is topped up and make sure their wiper blades are working.
They have also advised people to keep a blanket in the car if they are planning a long journey and to carry a shovel if they plan to go out after heavy snowfall.
Chief Inspector Justin Smith, said: “Hopefully the weather won’t be too bad this week but the advice is still to make sure your vehicle is winter ready, give it a once over check and that you have plenty of fuel.
