Timely advice for big freeze

Have your say

Doncaster Council is advising residents that as the temperatures plummet drivers should start preparing their cars to avoid unnecessary transport headaches.

Deputy Mayor, Coun Cynthia Ransome, said: “The council works hard to keep the road network running during extreme winter weather but drivers need to take some simple steps to ensure their cars are able to cope with the conditions too.

“Taking some time to prepare your vehicle, ahead of the winter weather hitting in full force, can save time and money in the long run, as well as helping you to get out of some tricky situations like being frozen out.”

The council has a fleet of 14 gritters and snowploughs working around the clock to help prevent frost or ice forming on over 350 miles of roads across the borough.
