Editorial: Home roads treacherous

It's been one of the most dangerous weeks on our roads in living memory with some 700 emergency callouts for the AA and road authorities struggling to grit just the main roads.

Most of us don't live on main roads, however. We live on estates and side roads which remain treacherous.

With schools back in a few days and hazardous conditions likely to remain, it's important to remember that most accidents occur near home. Please, slow down and be safe.
