AA advice

Here is some good advice by the AA, to be aware of the dangers of traveling through a ford.

With winter coming and the weather getting worse we advise for all road users to be extra careful even on road you know well.

It can take as little as 6 inches to knock you off your feet and only a foot of water to move a family sized car.

In bad weather plan journeys and inform some one of time of arrival

If in any doubt on the depth do not drive through any water
