-when travelling to and from work if you absolutely cannot work from home.

Please ensure your vehicle is roadworthy and drive carefully
You must ensure your vehicle is safe to drive before setting off on a journey. You should carry out a walkaround check of the vehicle before your journey and check the:
• wheel fixings
• trailer coupling
• load and other equipment
Our roads are vital for the transport of key workers, the delivery of goods and for the emergency services. The Traffic Officer Service works incredibly hard, 365 days a year, to ensure the network is safe to use. Please help them during this outbreak by minimising your chance of breaking down while out on the road and driving responsibly to ensure they’re able to focus resources where they’re needed most.
