Police issue black ice warning

Motorists are asked to take care while travelling on the roads this morning following a number of incidents where cars have slid on the road due to ice.

Police are also urging particular caution on the Desert Highway and State Highway 5, both north and south of Rotorua.

“Motorists need to ensure they drive to the conditions and reduce their speed where necessary.

“With the expected increase of vehicles on the road throughout today, motorists should look to plan their journey early and leave plenty of time to get to their destination.”

This latest warning comes after black ice affected a section of State Highway 36 in the Mangorewa Gorge, as well as SH30 and SH34 near Kawerau on Sunday.
