Met Office issues travel advice for snow and ice

The Met Office have issued advice for those travelling in snowy conditions.

  • Slow down - it can take 10 times longer to stop in the snow and ice so allow extra room.
  • Use the highest gear possible to avoid wheel spin, and avoid harsh breaking and acceleration.
  • If you start to skid, gently ease off the accelerator and avoid breaking.
  • If you must drive, take extra care: check the Highway Code for advice.
  • If you go outside wear several layers of clothing and keep dry to avoid loss of body heat.
  • Be careful when walking or driving on compacted snow as it may have turned to ice.
  • Take extra care when shovelling snow because the cold air makes it harder to work and breathe.
