Osborne Support Highways England Winter Readiness Reminder
Osborne is supporting Highways England and local councils in their winter preparedness message to drivers, as the cold snap may be about to bite.
Highways England is encouraging road users to be prepared as they set about their journeys in the coming days. Small steps that road users can take ahead their journey which can help them to avoid breaking down and help reduce the risk of disruption.
These simple steps include, planning journeys, checking vehicle readiness, that there is sufficient fuel and having a winter kit ready in the car, just in case it’s needed.
Winter can easily be the most challenging time for driving on our roads: it gets dark early and winter weather can bring all sorts of hazards – not just snow and ice, but hail, heavy rain, high winds, fog and even flooding.
