GRITTERS READY FOR DOUBLE DEPLOYMENT AS ANOTHER COLD NIGHT IN STORE

The Island’s gritting team are ready to hit the roads once again with another cold night in store for the Isle of Wight.

A full gritting run will be undertaken from 18:00 this evening (Monday), with further treatment of known wet spots at 05:00 tomorrow morning.

Motorists are, as always, being encouraged to drive according to the road conditions.

Sicky, Sometimes the pot holes are the only thing that stops speeding cars, but then the large four by fours, aren’t bothered by even those.

Courts weak, as jails full of the world’s vile, no longer just our own.

I think this this eleven hour gap between treatments is too long. The grit manufacturers recommend four hours, and no research has been undertaken to determine if road safety will be compromised if the second dose is administered after midnight.

This is grit not cv vaccine. Slow down is all you need do.
