RSA Reminds Motorists In Cork That Change In Weather This Weekend Means Vehicles Will Take Longer To Stop
The Road Safety Authority is reminding motorists in Cork that the change in weather conditions this weekend means that it will take vehicles longer to stop.
One person has already lost their life on an Irish road this weekend, when a driver was killed in a crash in County Laois yesterday afternoon.
The person died when their car hit a wall and then went on fire.
Speaking to RedFM News, RSA Communications Manager, Brian Farrell says there are a lot of things to remember when driving in poor weather conditions:
“If you’re following on behind vehicles, remember that the spray from trucks etc. can reduce your visibility. It’s important to make sure that your windscreen wiper tank is kept topped up. Of course, if you don’t have daytime running lights on your car, switch on your dipped headlights so that you can be seen in this kind of weather. Really important: watch out for cyclists and pedestrians out using the road. Wet roads mean it’s going to take longer to stop your vehicle so you need to slow down. Stay safe and remember to adjust your driving to the conditions that we find ourselves in this weekend”.
