· Several road related incidents and RTC’s have occurred. In all cases no one was injured.
Often on many of the high speed A roads incidents are most likely to occur especially with worsening weather conditions. We advise all drivers to be vigilant and drive within the speed limit and not drive when tired. We also encourage safe overtaking not on bends and awareness that ice/ snow can increase breaking distance by up to 10 times. Please see Weekly Community Safety document for more information.
