For the attention of road users - sleet on the roads!

Due to changes in the temperature from above to below zero and preceding precipitation in the form of rain, there is a sleet on the roads of the region. Special care should be taken on passes and during night-time period, because a thin layer of ice on the road surface is formed after rain or thaw at lower temperatures.  

Transcarpathian traffic police appeals to drivers to take care of their own safety. Drivers should keep in mind the specifics of driving on slippery roads. When tires hit the ice, their grip is immediately reduced by 4-5 times, which in turn increases the braking distance of vehicles several times. This means that a quick stop of a car is just impossible. So adhere to safe speed limits, rules of maneuvering, take extra precaution on bridges and flyovers. Under conditions of poor visibility during rain, etc., enable low beam headlights (or fog lights).

Strict observance of traffic rules is the key to safety - Traffic Police Office of teh Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine in Transcarpathian region informed.
