Storms Dudley and Eunice - RAC issues advice to drivers

Storms Dudley and Eunice - RAC issues advice to drivers

Commenting on the arrival this week of two separate named storms, RAC Breakdown spokesperson Rod Dennis said:

"The strength of the wind brought about by Storm Dudley will make driving conditions extremely difficult for drivers in the north of the UK, so we urge people to delay their journeys until the storm passes if at all possible. Anyone who does set out should stick to major roads if they can, reduce their speed while driving and have a firm grip of the steering wheel at all times but especially when overtaking high-sided vehicles. We also recommend parking away from trees as the storm may well cause some to fall.

"And as Dudley departs, less than 24 hours later Storm Eunice will arrive introducing very unsettled conditions to much of the rest of the country. Some areas may see snow accompanying the strong winds, a particularly dangerous combination and one that has the potential to be extremely hazardous for drivers. It's vital drivers plan ahead and keep tuned to weather forecasts over the next few days to understand where is likely to see the greatest disruption from the weather."
