A police spokesman said road conditions were poor with surfaces very wet and slippery after rain for much of the night.
“We would ask drivers to make sure they have their lights on and they reduce their speed and keep a look-out for standing water on the roads,” said a police spokesman.
“People should also allow more time for their journeys in these conditions.”
