FTA advises drivers to follow weather warnings

18th January 2013

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) is urging drivers to stay abreast of weather conditions over the next few days so as to remain safe on the roads.

Snow and ice have already been causing chaos for drivers in England and Wales, with worsening weather forecast for the next three days.

The Met Office has put in amber and red warnings across the country, meaning that all non-essential travel should be avoided in these areas.

Keeping drivers up to date, the FTA's own traffic service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and offers advice on travelling on the nation's roads.

Commenting on the extreme driving conditions, Malcolm Bingham, FTA's head of road network management policy, said: "Working with the Met Office and the Highways Agency FTA's traffic service has been warning our members of the approaching snow."

He went on to add that "all motorists need to be aware of the developing snow falls as this weather system passes over the country".
