Police warn drivers to take extra care on roads

South Worcestershire Police are warning drivers to take extra care on the roads in Worcester this morning due to torrential rain.

AA top tips for driving in heavy rain:

  • Use headlights when visibility is seriously reduced - generally when you cannot see for more than 100 metres
  • You may use front or rear fog lights but you MUST switch them off when visibility improves
  • Improve vision in wet weather by renewing windscreen wipers
  • Stopping distances increase on wet roads so double the distance you leave between you and the car in front
  • If steering becomes unresponsive due to the rain, ease off the accelerator and slow down gradually
