Police urge all motorists to think carefully about their driving behaviour as they head off to work, run the kids to school or if they are simply out and about driving following overnight rain.
Water has pooled on the road surface and many gutters are full and over-flowing making driving conditions hazardous.
Roads will be slippery due to rain mixed with dirt and grime and it is vitally important that drivers slow down and drive to those conditions.
Stopping in a hurry is not the same as on a dry road so increase the distance between you and the car in front so as to avoid the rear-end crash.
Please be patient with each other so that everyone can go about their journey crash and injury free.
