Don’t Relax Your Driving When the Floods Subside

Many parts of the UK have experienced very wet roads and large puddles in 2014, causing drivers to slow down.

As road surfaces start to dry out, and water levels subside, Jonathan Mosley, director of sales and marketing at E-Training World is warning drivers to remain vigilant and not ease off their level of concentration when driving.

“Many drivers travelling on very wet roads have been forced to slow down in recent weeks,” said Jonathan. “This is mainly because they have had very little choice, particularly on A-roads and in rural areas where large parts of the road surfaces have been covered in water.

“As the water levels subside, there could be a general sigh of relief with drivers tempted to go faster, allow less time for their journeys if they believe the roads will be clearer, and feel generally more relaxed that there are less hazards to contend with, which is when accidents can occur.

“Our message to fleet managers is to put out an important reminder to their drivers that careful driving is expected whatever the weather. In fact, all weather types, from summer to winter bring their own unique hazards which is why we encourage drivers to undertake our online driver training module about driving in adverse weather conditions.”
