Fuelcard News Motoring Updates: Traffic chaos amid wintry weather
Current wintry conditions have caused further disruption and travel misery for motorists over the weekend, with no let-up expected for this week.
Further snow and ice caused gridlock on the roads, with hundreds of motorists stranded in their cars for long durations.
Many roads were closed, with heavy traffic on others and there was disruption for bus services in the south.
In a report on its website, the Highways Agency is advising drivers to take extra care in exceptionally low temperatures, including checking road and weather conditions before setting out, driving at a safe speed to match the state of the road surface, packing an emergency kit in case of breakdown or delays, and in some of the worst affected areas, avoiding non-essential travel altogether.

Meanwhile, snow also caused havoc at airports, closing some and causing widespread delays and cancellations at others.
Transport Secretary Philip Hammond told Sky News that the Government will be holding a review into how the country and its airports have dealt with the wintry weather.
