Car insurance: Drivers beware heavy weather

Friday, 21 September 2007

Drivers should be extra careful on the roads today as the Met Office has issued severe weather warnings in some areas of the UK.

Those travelling in the north-west of England, Yorkshire and Humber and the east midlands have been urged to take caution, as have motorists in some areas of Wales.

People should be aware that the wet conditions make driving more hazardous, potentially leading to crashes, threatening lives and car insurance policies alike.

The Met Office states: "Persistent rain is expected through the rest of Friday morning with some locally very heavy downpours.

"The public are advised to take extra care."

In August, the Met Office predicted that the heavy rain and wind which has characterised much of the summer in the UK was likely to continue.

Keith Groves, head of forecasting at the Met Office, warned of tough driving conditions, particularly for caravan users.
