Allow for extra journey time along the A142 and do not be tempted into taking a ‘questionable overtake’ is the warning coming from police.
“The A142 is particularly congested with seasonal demand on agricultural traffic and high sided vehicles,” said a police spokesman.
“Drivers are asked to display an extra level of patience and care when driving this route particularly.
“If your route is likely to take you along this stretch of highway, please factor in extra journey time - the chances are that you will spend at least a period of your route behind a slow moving vehicle.”
Sgt Phil Priestley said: “This is part and parcel of rural life - the farming community and the farming economy is key to the surrounding area - but it can cause frustration for drivers.
You may also want to watch:
“Don’t be tempted into taking a questionable overtake - head on collisions are always the most likely to lead to fatalities.
“Try to plan an extra 10 or 15 minutes into your journey time to compensate for the likely delay.
