Motorists must drive safe due to icy driving conditions.
Since the start of spring we haven’t seen much sunshine. The weather has been cold, recently we have had snow come and go and driving conditions haven’t been the best.
Last week snow, sleet and hail fell across the country and we might be due more next week. With temperatures looking to drop below zero, AA Roadwatch are warning drivers.
Authorities have warned of dangerous driving conditions in part of the north west, the west and the midlands. Many areas have roads with left over ice and snow so drivers must be aware of the driving conditions and take caution.
There have already been a number of crashes due to the icy roads. Including one at junction 17 Athenry, another in the N65 between Loughrea and the motorway, one on the N4 in Carrick-on-Shannon and two incidents in Tipperary.
Take precautions and drive safe late at night. Driving safe on the road is becoming more difficult as the number of vehicles driving late at night increase.
With more people driving to work in the early morning and back home late at night, driving safe is more important than ever as there are more cars on the road than ever.
The average working person now spends approximately seven hours and 50 minutes traveling every week. This is according to the CSO’s National Travel Survey, which travel patterns across Ireland. So be sure you are driving safe in the dark.
