Easter Ice Warning

Ice Warning.jpg

There is an ice warning sign on the side of the road as you drive east out of Chicheley on the A422 towards Bedford.  Motorists ignore this warning sign at their peril.

The S bends to the east of Chicheley, known as Clay Hills, are very prone to icing.  Despite traction control and better tyres, several cars make unplanned diversions via the hedgerow due to ice during winter months.

The photograph on the right above, taken on Good Friday, shows that the tradition continues during the prolonged cold weather of 2013.  Fortunately, on this occasion, there were no injuries.
