Isle of Man police are to conduct random car checks as part of a winter safety campaign.

The constabulary is warning motorists to make sure all cars are road worthy ahead of the winter months.

All drivers are being urged to check wiper blades, lights, battery, windscreen washer water and tyres.

Spot checks will be carried out over the next few weeks and any defective cars could lead to owners being prosecuted or fined.

Infrastructure Minister David Cretney said: "A check of your vehicle now will help ensure you avoid prosecution and a possible fine, but more importantly may help save someone's life, including your own."
