· Police caution motorists to pay attention to their immediate surroundings at all times when driving.

· It always important to leave a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you but this is especially important when roads are covered with ice and/or snow.

· It only takes a split second for circumstances to change when you’re driving
