WITH more extreme winter weather predicted, Sidmouth and Ottery St Mary drivers have been urged to take extra care on the roads.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has issued advice to motorists should they venture out in poor weather.

IAM Chief Examiner Peter Rodger said: "If the journey is unavoidable, motorists should take extra precautions when dealing with severe surface conditions. Torrential rain brings with it visibility problems as the car mists up in seconds."
