Road safety reminder issued as half term ends

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is reminding motorists of the importance of driving according to weather conditions.

More traffic is expected on road as families return from half term breaks.

Rain is predicted for Sunday and this could make the roads more dangerous.

Road Safety Advice

ü  Check your route and the weather before you set off

ü  Ensure that your vehicle is road worthy. Make sure that your tyres have sufficient tread and that they are inflated in line with the manufacturer's guidelines.

ü  Make sure your lights and windscreen wipers are fully working and that you have enough fuel in case of delays or diversions.

ü  Remember to slow down and keep your distance from the car in front of you - it takes much longer to stop in the wet and fallen leaves can be just as slippery and treacherous for motorists as driving on ice.

ü  Don’t drive while tired. Take regular breaks and swap drivers if possible.
