Driving in Adverse Weather

Weather conditions at this time of year bring a number of hazards for the road user including ice, snow, excess surface water and debris from high winds. The police have offered the following advice:

  • Allow extra time for your journey
  • Slow down and leave plenty of room to stop. You should allow at least three times more space than usual between you and the car in front of you.
  • Brake gently to avoid skidding. If your wheels start to lock, ease off the brakes.
  • Turn on your lights to increase your visibility to other motorists and always clear all ice and snow off the car windows before setting out.
  • Drive slowly on snow in the highest gear possible.
  • Never overtake snowploughs or gritting lorries. The drivers have limited visibility, and you're likely to find the road in front of them worse than the road behind.
  • Do not assume your vehicle can handle all conditions. Even four-wheel drive vehicles can encounter trouble on winter roads.
