Is Your Journey Necessary?

In extreme weather conditions you should ask yourself if making a journey by road is absolutely necessary.

 

You might consider delaying your trip until the weather and road conditions improve or use public transport where available.

 

If your journey is unavoidable you should be prepared. Ensure your vehicle
has a more than adequate supply of fuel for the journey. Allow extra time and
drive with caution.

 

Let someone know your route and when you expect to arrive. Check to see if there are any problems on your intended route before setting out on a journey. Listen to TV or radio bulletins and check the weather
forecast.

 

Remember that the best road conditions are likely to occur between
10am and 4pm.
