The Highways Agency is warning drivers to take care on the roads

Highways Agency, South West operations manager, Gary Parsons, said “We are doing everything we can to ensure our roads are affected as little as possible by the adverse weather but we would urge road users to play their part by checking weather forecasts and traffic conditions before they set out and drive with extra care.

“It takes twice as long to stop when the road is wet, so leave plenty of space between vehicles, and slow down if heavy rain or spray is making it difficult to see the road ahead.
