Inspector calls for common sense from motorists

Wed, 10 Nov 2010

The Head of the Roads Policing Unit is urging drivers to use more common sense when driving in icy conditions.

Inspector Mark Britton asks that motorists take notice of the weather to make sure they don't become a statistic.

Inspector Britton believes the number of crashes and road closures would fall if people drove slower and more cautiously during winter.
