Warning to drivers as foggy weather continues


Date: 25th January, 2017

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is reminding drivers to take extra care while the current freezing fog conditions continue.

Over the last few mornings, the Service has been called to numerous road traffic collisions across its area due to the adverse weather.

Group Manager Byron Standen said: “The freezing conditions mean black ice on the roads, while the fog affects visibility. Whilst attending these incidents, we have been shocked by how many drivers have not had even basic lights on their vehicles, let alone fog lights. We would urge all drivers to take extra care and be mindful of the additional risk this poor weather presents, especially first thing in the morning and when it’s dark.”

Some top tips for drivers include:
