Councils across the country have begun the ritual roadworks which take place nearly every year, causing a number of local headaches for motorists across the country.
With this in mind Be Wiser Insurance would like to remind motorists to have a back-up route prepared for occasions when the morning commute is suddenly interrupted by roadworks!
Mark Bower-Dyke, Chairman of Be Wiser Insurance, comments:
"It's that time of year again, when councils decide to cone off slices of our roadways in anticipation of work yet to start - sometimes seemingly randomly! It's time to consider your back-up route for the morning commute."
This March the government announced a £168 million pot-hole repair fund, opening up an opportunity to fix the most hated feature of British roads.
Mark Bower-Dyke continues:
"Because of the nature of these pot-hole fixes, and the way they're scattered about our towns, villages and local roads, there's often little in the way of warning for motorists except those who are very local to the work. So taking a moment to consider other routes into work can give you a chance to avoid queues almost effortlessly."
At the end of every year Be Wiser asks UK motorists what tops their motoring wish-list, and without fail the disappearance of pot-holes wins hands down every time.
Mark Bower-Dyke concludes:
"While it might be a pain to have to consider alternative routes, or worse, get stuck in a jam - the end result should mean that we're driving on smoother roads by Christmas!"
