Good Advice

Highways Englandlic and road travellers to be able to complete their work safely.

In winter, delivery work is painfully slow, but slowing down is the best advice these winter warriors can give to drivers who have to be on the roads. Attempting to pass these slow-moving gritter vehicles is also a major no-no. The temptation to overtake their trucks via the hard shoulder can result in collisions with stationary vehicles, and can also cause a hazard when the gritters are trying to exit at junctions.

Team Work

At the end of the day, we all recognize that we are simply trying to get a job done. Winter delivery work requires sharp wits, expert driving skills and your warmest thermals. A commitment to the job is admirable, but a responsible owner will call his fleet off the roads if the weather poses a serious risk to employees and/or equipment.

The Highways England team of gritters are as prepared for the unknown as much as anyone can be without a crystal ball. Mutual respect and common sense while traversing the roadways keeps everyone safe, and will hopefully get you back home safe and sound and in decent time.
