Find a car: Wintry weather set to batter ScotlandFeb 03 2011, 05:02 PM
Motorists are warned to take care if journeying around Scotland in the coming days, ahead of some severe weather.
Drivers who find a car and are preparing to take it out on Scotland's roads have been warned to take care, as a fresh batch of wintry weather is set to grip the nation.
Up to 90mph winds are set to hinder the journey of those who find a used car over the next few days, with the Western Isles, Northern Isles and the Outer Hebrides expected to endure the most severe conditions.
Furthermore, snow falls of up to 10cm are set to batter higher parts of Argyll and the north-west Highlands at least, though motorists in other areas should also be on alert.
Eight flood warnings were issued by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency too, for rivers in Argyll, the Highlands, Tayside, Shetland and around Stirling.
Transport minister Keith Brown commented: "We are … expecting high winds, therefore we ask drivers to take extra caution when driving through exposed areas."
Meanwhile, Chris MacRae, the Freight Transport Association's head of policy for Scotland, has recently said that more needs to be done with winter resilience measures in the country, to make for better driving conditions for drivers over the winter months.
