Some advice to motorists
- In bad weather conditions, adapt your speed and be even more careful,
- Listen to the radio, where road information is broadcast,
- Do not overtake the snow removal machines during their work,
- Don't forget your chains, remember to leave them accessible and, before leaving, test fit them to your vehicle,
- Bring warm clothes, an electric lamp and water,
- And in case of a traffic jam, do not leave your vehicle without being invited by the police!

Have a good trip, be careful!
 
Roads in winter:
In winter, when it snows, the snowplough passes regularly, but if you drive on a day when it snows heavily the roads cannot be kept clear all the time.
Here are some useful tips: Have a well-equipped vehicle, clear your car of snow properly, drive slowly, turn on your headlights and keep your distance. Use the engine brake to slow down. Winter tyres are sufficient in 90% of cases, in bad weather.
Don't wait until you are in difficulty to fit your chains! Anticipate, install your chains in a safe place and not on the road (main cause of traffic blockage and therefore blockage of the snowplough!).

- Equipping your vehicle in winter: is special equipment compulsory?
It is essential to provide special equipment: i.e. "winter" tyres
 and chains to be left in the boot of your car (easily accessible).
A pair of chains is the minimum equipment (not to be used on motorways and motorways). Remember to take gloves. Practice mounting the chains at home before you leave. If you have to chain at night, remember to take a torch or a headlamp.
 
You may not have to use it. But if it snows when you arrive or leave, you will not be able to drive if your vehicle is not equipped.
The gendarmerie reserves the right to force you to chain your vehicle in bad weather (including 4x4s without winter tyres) or even to immobilise you if you are not equipped.
 
A well-prepared trip, a well-equipped vehicle, is a serene trip!
