Storm Franklin set to batter Brits as Met Office release more weather warnings


Can you drive in a red weather warning? 

Winds in excess of 90mph have been predicted due to Storm Eunice today, which could make driving potentially treacherous.

There are no rules against driving where there is a red weather warning, though people are advised to be a particularly careful if they choose to do so.

National Highways head of road safety, Jeremy Phillips, said: “We’re encouraging drivers to check the latest weather and travel conditions before setting off on journeys and consider if their journey is necessary and can be delayed until conditions improve.

“If you do intend to travel, then plan your trip and take extra care, allowing more time for your journey.

“In high winds, there’s a particular risk to lorries, caravans and motorbikes, so we’d advise drivers of these vehicles to slow down.

“Drivers of other vehicles should be aware of sudden gusts of wind which can affect handling and braking, and give high-sided vehicles, caravans, and motorbikes plenty of space.

“In the event of persistent high winds we may need to close bridges to traffic for a period, so please be alert for warnings of closures and follow signed diversion routes.”
