Gardaí warn motorists to take care during inclement weather

With heavy rain forecast, the gardaí are warning motorists to go slow and take care on the roads.

ROAD USERS ARE being urged to take care on the roads during the current bad weather.

With Met Éireann forecasting continued inclement weather nationwide, An Garda Síochána are urging road users to take care when travelling.

“Please be aware of all others on the road and travel a safe distance from cars in front of you,” gardaí said today.

Conditions can be changeable from area to area so always drive at a speed suitable to conditions, and remain conscious that localised flooding may occur, and visibility may be reduced.

For further advice, the gardaí invite people to visit www.garda.ie, or www.rsa.ie.

Meanwhile, Met Eireann has said that a small craft warning is in effect as easterly winds will reach force six or higher this afternoon and evening on Irish coasts, from Rossan Point to Howth head to Carnsore Point.
