Heavy vehicle traffic in winter, an information leaflet for drivers

 

 

The winter weather, and the road disturbances that they cause, testify to the interest of a collective operational preparation in the face of the meteorological hazard.

Every winter, the services in charge of the maintenance and the viability of the roads are organized and mobilize significant means. Despite this, heavy vehicles are particularly vulnerable when driving conditions deteriorate. In the event of an incident, they risk blocking traffic, especially winter service equipment.

Also, at the announcement of a major winter weather episode, the authorities are often led to adopt specific measures for the management of heavy goods vehicles: driving prohibition and / or compulsory parking.

To facilitate the implementation of these emergency devices, you will find, in connection, a multi-language brochure containing information useful to drivers, in the face of these exceptional circumst.
