Motorists are reminded of the following advice:
Avoid overnight travel unless absolutely essential as roads will always be more hazardous at night with less traffic and colder temperatures; �Never assume a road has been salted. Remember that wintry showers or rain will wash salt off roads leaving them prone to ice, and in extreme cold even salting will not stop ice from forming; �Allow additional time for your journey and reduce your speed; �Drive with care and according to the conditions. Pedestrians should also take care on pavements and beware of the potential of ice falling from rooftops; �If you have vulnerable or elderly neighbours, think about how they could possibly be helped through the cold spell;
