Baslow. Three visitors to Derbyshire from London because lockdown is “boring”. Unfortunately, Albanian driving licenses don’t work here after 10 years of residency so vehicle seized. A long walk and Covid fines incoming.#OpDerbyshire #Seized

Driving in the snow1. Wear comfortable and dry footwear2. Accelerate gently3. Move off in second gear as this will help reduce wheel spin – some cars have a winter mode.4. Maintain safe stopping distances between you and the car in front, leaving as much as 10 times the normal recommended gap 5. Prepare for an uphill by leaving plenty of room in front so you can maintain a constant speed without the need for changing gear6. Use a low gear for going downhill and try to avoid braking unless necessary, make sure you leave plenty of space between you and the car in front7. When approaching a bend, brake before you actually start to turn the steering wheel. If your car does lose grip try not to panic; the key thing is to take your foot off the accelerator and make sure that your wheels are pointing in the direction you want to go in8. If you do encounter a skid, steer gently into it – for example, if the rear of the car is sliding to the right, steer to the right. Do not take your hands off the steering wheel or stamp your foot on the brakes9. When driving in heavy snow, make sure that you use your dipped headlights. Relying on daytime running lights is not enough, because they don’t always put lights on the back of your car.10. If visibility drops below a 100m, put your fog lights on. But remember to turn them off when the visibility improves.11. If the road has not been gritted, be wary of driving in the wheeltracks or other vehicles as compressed snow is likely to be more icy than fresh snow12. Controls such as the brakes, as well as the steering, accelerator and even gear changing should be operated smoothly and slowly13. Sunglasses can help to reduce the glare of low winter sun on the snow14. Keep your speed down and allow more time to stop and steer15. Finally, it’s important to think about the environment that you’re driving in, especially microclimates that might appear on the road. These are areas that perhaps the sun hasn’t got to, which could stay icy when the rest of the road has thawed. Bridges are a good example. They’re normally the first to freeze and the last to thaw. So be aware of that when you’re driving in open spaces.REMEMBER: Make sure you keep your car clean. The salt used to de-ice roads can cause corrosion to your car over time, so it’s worth making a point of cleaning it regularly throughout the winter months.

FRIDAY EVENING UPDATE | Some of our bin crews will be working on **Saturday** to try to catch up with any remaining household waste and associated food waste collections missed due to severe weather conditions at the start of this week.The message to affected residents is please leave out your containers until the end of Saturday.A reminder that unfortunately we don’t have the resources to go back for any recycling missed in recent times. This will now be collected on your next scheduled recycling day. As always we’re happy to take additional recycling if it is properly presented and here’s guidance on this 👉 www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/excessrecyclingPlease note also:* Green waste collections are still suspended, including food waste on those rounds* This means in the current situation that food waste is being collected fortnightly rather than weekly on residents’ household waste collection weekThank you for your continued patience and understanding in these exceptional times 🙏
