Snow Visibility and Vehicle Check Warnings

Police are warning drivers to use their common sense and clear their vehicles of ice and snow before attempting to drive.

The warning comes as the county sees another morning of chaos on the roads.

Although the last remnants of snow have finally melted, the problem of ice on the roads – in particular the treacherous black ice, that is hard to spot – remains.

There were a number of collisions on roads during this morning’s rush hour, including at Chacewater, Redruth and on the Longdowns to Stithians road.

Police officers are out and about keeping an eye on the flow of the traffic and have urged people to make sure they make checks on their car – including the most basic, of being able to see out the windscreen – before driving away.
