Ice on the road
It can take up to 10 times longer to stop your car when driving on ice.
Look well ahead when driving and adjust your speed to reflect the conditions. If you get it wrong the consequences may be catastrophic.
In 2011, 32 people were killed and 3,912 people were injured in reported road accidents when there was snow or ice on the road surface.DfT
figures also show that 6 people were killed and 672 were injured when it was snowing at the time. If your in any doubt about your ability or the severity of the conditions and the journey isn’t important, then don’t drive.
Take your time, don’t rush, and above all, have a great Xmas!
