Clearing snow and ice
Some local roads are cleared of snow and ice by your local council in line with the priorities of their winter road maintenance plans.
They may also clear pavements and footpaths. If they don't do this, you may need to do it yourself. There's information about how to do this safely on the GOV.UK website.
Black ice on roads and pavements
If you can, avoid journeys when the roads are icy.
If you must travel, read Police Scotland's advice about driving safely in winter.
You can apply salt or grit to pavements outside your home or business to reduce black ice.
Grit bins are maintained by your council and are for residents or any road user.
Contact your local council with details of the grit bin location if it needs to be topped up.
