Travelling in bad weather

Last updated: 9 February 2017

Before travelling in bad weather, you should:

  • think about whether you need to travel right now, or if you can wait until the weather improves
  • check the weather forecast and road conditions
  • think about using alternative routes and types of transport
  • allow extra time for your journey
  • fully charge your mobile phone
  • tell someone your destination and when you expect to arrive
  • make sure you have appropriate clothing, equipment and food
