HC Deb 08 November 1961 vol 648 c50W
52. Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to impress on motorists that driving at high speed on wet roads is far more dangerous than on dry roads.

Mr. Hay

Yes. Motorists are already advised in the Highway Code to pay regard to the weather and state of the road, but we are arranging for more publicity to be given to the need to take particular care when driving on wet roads.
