RAC's top patrol advises drivers as Storm Dennis arrives

Ahead of the arrival of Storm Dennis this weekend, RAC patrol of the year Ben Aldous said:

“After so much wind and rain last weekend, drivers will again have to contend with some pretty dreadful conditions on the road with the arrival of Storm Dennis. With transport disruption likely, drivers should expect their journeys to take longer than usual and should stay up-to-date with the latest traffic and travel information as the conditions could change quickly.

“There is also a strong risk of flooding given all the recent rain so it’s essential motorists never attempt to drive through deep floodwater – those that do are not just risking damage to their vehicles but risking their lives and those of their passengers.”

The RAC website carries comprehensive advice on driving in wind and heavy rain and coping with flooded roads.
