A reminder to drive safe this winter

Last year there were no winter weather related fatal accidents in the Ashburton District. Lets keep it that way!

 Ashburton District Council are urging residents who are travelling on the roads to take caution during Winter. The conditions can cause slippery roads, compromised visibility and often sun strike​ during peak hour traffic. Property owners  with overgrown roadside shelterbelts are encouraged to trim them back and remove problem trees. These can shade rural roads, making them icy and dangerous to drive on.
