RAC Traffic Watch spokesman Rod Dennis said: “The arrival of the third storm this month will again mean motorists need to be braced for challenging conditions on the roads. Traffic levels on major routes in the run up to the new year should be relatively light, but the combination of very wet and windy weather, especially in the north and west of the UK, will mean drivers need to take extra care.

“Our patrols are working hard to assist members throughout the festive period, but there are a few simple things that every motorist can do to lessen the chances of breaking down – it can really pay to quickly check things like the condition of windscreen wipers, tyres and oil and washer fluid levels before setting out.

"We also recommend motorists plan their journeys carefully, allowing extra time as necessary, and are prepared to change their route if weather conditions deteriorate – especially with a threat of further flooding in some areas.”
