Driving in Snow and Ice

When driving in icy or snowy weather

• drive with care, even if the roads have been treated

• keep well back from the road user in front as stopping distances can be ten times greater than on dry roads

• take care when overtaking vehicles spreading salt or other de-icer, particularly if you are riding a motorcycle or cycle

• watch out for snowploughs which may throw out snow on either side. Do not overtake them unless the lane you intend to use has been cleared

• be prepared for the road conditions to change over relatively short distances

• listen to travel bulletins and take note of variable message signs that may provide information about weather, road and traffic conditions ahead.
