He said: “There have been a lot of weather-related incidents. They have either been collisions or vehicles leaving the road,

“It’s mainly on the rural roads that haven’t been treated.

“People should take more time and be aware that a lot of the minor roads haven’t been treated. They should drive according to the conditions.”

  • Why do you keep having headlines like this.? The cause is poor driving, not the weather. The police spokesman summed it up (again) "They should drive according to the conditions."

  • the last two comments dont know what theyre talking about, it is not the drivers fault. it doesnt matter what speed the driver is going, when u have road conditions as bad as this, accidents do happen, no fault of the driver

  • The road conditions have nothing to do with accidents is peoples ability well lack of it to adapt to different weather and road conditions. Simple wake up 10 minutes earlier and leave 10 minutes earlier then go a little SLOWER ! Its hardly rocket science just incompetence.
