Motorists urged to drive safely in wet conditions

Police urge all motorists to take a moment as they get behind the wheel of their car this morning and think about the road and driving conditions ahead.

Overnight rain has made roads wet and slippery and therefore it is vitally important to adjust your speed and slow down as well as increasing the distance between you and the car in front to allow for safe and controlled braking if the need arises.

So before you put the car in gear, put your brain in gear for a safe and accident free journey to work, to drop the kids off at school or wherever you may be travelling this morning.
