As the conditions worsen on Suffolk’s roads, the advice from police is to, “only get behind the wheel if it is completely necessary.”
Chief Inspector Matt Rose from the Suffolk Contact and Control Room gave this advice: “Only get behind the wheel if it is completely necessary and, please, if you do travel make sure you make the necessary provisions for your journey and make sure your vehicle is prepared for the journey ahead;
“Please follow our twitter (@suffolkpolice) and our facebook page (/suffolkpolice) for updates of any road traffic collisions and areas to avoid. I would also advise to listen to local radio and tune into weather reports to get an idea of the state of the roads.
“Our priority is those who are already stuck or have been involved in an RTC. Please bear with us, we have to take the same precautions you do and it may take as slightly longer to get to you.
“My final appeal is for you to look after each other. If you have elderly or vulnerable relatives or neighbours, make sure they are ok and have everything they need.”
