From Lancashire County Council: Gritting teams urge everyone to park carefully

Lancashire County Council's highway teams are urging people to park carefully to make sure the gritters can do their job during the coming cold snap.

They're warning that parts of some gritting routes often go untreated because drivers don't leave enough room for vehicles to get past. Parked cars are most often a problem for the gritters on residential streets in towns and villages, with drivers saying they can't treat some hotspots around 90% of the time.

To find out where the gritting routes are in your area, and for advice on travelling safely, visit Lancashire County Council (external link).
