Advice to avoid being caught out by the floods

Gloucestershire Police are advising drivers to:

  • Listen to local radio bulletins for road closures before setting off
  • Leave extra time for a journey if it is necessary
  • Put your lights on even during the day so you can be seen to other road users
  • Don’t drive into floodwater – you don’t know how deep it is
  • Make sure you’re prepared if you get caught in a traffic jam – with enough fuel, your mobile phone battery fully charged, and food and drink
  • Be wary of high winds and the extra risks they may bring
  • Take extra care if driving through standing water alongside pedestrians or cyclists
