Wet weather and residual oil, dust or leaves on on road surfaces make driving conditions slick, the North Island’s highway service contractor is warning.
Mainroad North Island Contracting LP issued a reminder to motorists to slow down with the return of rain today. Slippery road equals a longer stopping time. Drivers are advised to maintain a safe following distance – at least four seconds between you and other motorists.
Mainroad crews will be patrolling the service area but if you see a highway issue or debris, contact Mainroad’s 24-hour toll free hotline at 1-877-215-7122.
