Abnormal loads

If you are going to be carrying an abnormal load you may need to notify us first.

Slow moving traffic

The Highway Code states that slow moving traffic should not cause a long queue of traffic.  If necessary, pull in where it is safe and let traffic pass.  Travel on main ‘A’ class roads should be avoided at peak times.
