Weather warning to drivers
DRIVERS are being urged to ensure they are keeping to the rules of the road during the current cold snap.
With freezing temperatures and snow expected, motorists are being reminded to check their vehicles are roadworthy before setting out.
The warning comes as The Met Office forecasts snow and severe weather.
Casualty reduction officer in Cambridgeshire, Pc Steve Gedny, said: “The snow and ice on the roads combine to make tricky driving conditions and mean it is even more important to prepare your vehicle before setting off on your journey.
“If the weather is severe please consider do you need to make the journey? If it is essential make sure you allow plenty of time.
You may also want to watch:
“Windows will be iced-up and they can quickly become misty when the heater takes effect.
“I would urge people to take time to make sure their windows are fully de-iced and clear before setting off.

PC Gedny added: “It is vital that drivers check that their tyres are in good condition. Taking a few minutes to clear off ice and snow from your car can help prevent a collision.”
