Highways Agency gives East Lancashire drivers winter warning

Burnley and Pendle Citizen: 'Make Time for Winter' 'Make Time for Winter'

THE Highways Agency is urging East Lancashire drivers to 'Make Time for Winter' by preparing themselves and their vehicles.

Latest research from the Agency showed that almost three quarters of drivers in the region do not check their vehicles before travelling in severe weather.

Roads minister Robert Goodwill said: “The Highways Agency does all it can to keep the roads open during severe weather.

“But drivers need to play their part too by making simple vehicle checks.”

Thats probably because you've been stuck behind it some an often! Land Rover, best 4x4 by far! Not too keen on the Freelancer though - Discovery 4, best by far!

On the face of it Sajdin, that's a valid point. But every competent driver should know what checks to make. It should have been learned in the earliest stages and practiced every winter since.
Anyway, hope you've had a good day - merry Christmas

Yes absolutely, as a driver you should know, I know!

But very unhelpful of LET for not doing it, for those incompetent drivers!

Hope you had a good christmas.

I wasn't expecting that. my "brothers" driving the taxi's, bascially I hate them. I cannot describe how angry I get when I see them driving, stopping in the middle of the road, jumping out at junctions and roundabouts, thinking they own the roads! Its not Pakistan / India where this is expected!

hunter3062, just because most of them as Asian drivers, doesn't mean I will automatically support them. The majority of them are a bunch of morons.

I am reliably informed that the reason taxi drivers wind their windows down, even when it's freezing cold, is when passengers have a problem with body odour!
