Warning for Worcestershire motorists as snow is forecast
MOTORISTS are being warned to take extra care on the roads this weekend as temperatures are set to plummet.
The Safer Roads Partnership in Warwickshire and West Mercia have issued the warning as the Met Office has forecast outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow across the area on Saturday followed by a rapid drop in temperature, which will lead to a risk of icy and slippery roads.
Anna Higgins, Communications Manager at the Safer Roads Partnership, said: “With sleet, snow and low temperatures forecast over the next few days, roads could get very slippery and motorists will need to exercise caution.
“It takes much longer for vehicles to slow down on wet, icy or snowy roads. Keep well back from the vehicle in front and allow plenty of time to slow down.
“It really is worth spending a couple of minutes to put a few extra items in the boot of your car that could be essential if you breakdown or experience a delay due to bad weather.”
