WILD WEATHER AHEAD – AVOID DRIVING TOMORROW UNLESS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL, warns RAC…
With the severest possible Red weather warning issued by the Met. Office, meaning ‘danger to life’ from the high winds associated with Storm Eunice, about to hit the U.K. tomorrow, Friday 18th February 2022, the RAC is advising people not to drive until conditions improve.
RAC Breakdown spokesperson Rod Dennis said: “With a rare red weather warning for extreme winds in place tomorrow, safety on the roads will be paramount. It’s vitally important drivers don’t set out during Storm Eunice unless it can’t be avoided. It might be better to make trips today or delay them until the worst of the storm has passed. Drivers who make unnecessary journeys risk putting themselves and their passengers in danger, as well as the lives of anyone who may need to help them should something unwanted happen.”
“People who can work from home tomorrow should definitely do so, and we also urge people not to be tempted to drive to the coast to take photos of the extreme conditions.”
