    Default SLOW DOWN - Annual Reminder

    Just my annual reminder for you to slow down now winter is approaching.

    Road & Weather conditions will be worsening by the day and you will not have the grip you used to have during the summer months.

    Be more aware of your cornering speed and your braking distances.

    Be Safe

    a very worthy reminder indeed -

    normal run to work yesterday with the first fall of rain in a while - passed 4 accidents (with police in attendance) and 1 lane closure on the A14

    And if its dull or road conditions are poor please use your dipped headlights as us large vehicles drivers have more chance of seeing you in our mirrors

    Well said Steve. Just plain common sense. Trouble is some people don't have any common sense, and need the reminder all year round.

    Exactly...

    Fast = the driver who comes out of the corner first, not who goes into the corner first

    You've obviously not been in Scotland revently then
    I always advise our drivers in the middle of September to replace any worn out tyres ready for "leaf shedding season" which starts from the end of September
