Driving conditions are expected to be much better this year than last, with temperatures slightly warmer this year however, this does not mean that we can become complacent as drivers during the month of December.

Motorists are urged to be alert on the roads and drive carefully on frosty roads and watch out for black ice.

To check your car before each journey, especially your tyres and ensure you have enough fuel to get you to your destination and extra in case you get stuck in traffic.

Not to use your windscreen wipers as an ice scraper, you will no doubt ruin them and cause yourself serious problems should it rain. Instead use an ice scraper or warm cloth to clear any ice.

Over the Christmas and New Year period when travelling to see family and friends it is important to plan your journey and be aware of your fatigue levels. Ensure you take a break and stretch your legs should you be on a long on journey.
