I want to complain about this content:

  • Obviously the weather had something to do with. But forecasts were generally accurate and I believe a lot of ill-advised journeys were being made. Gritters cannot operate on traffic-filled roads and a midday snowstorm is bound to cause major problems. The technology now exists for most people and schoolchildren to remain occupied with some of their normal work for a day or two. Having said that, many people have factory and outdoor work jobs, work in shops, hospitals and public transport so there will always be a large number of unavoidable traffic movements for which better preparations need to be made. More grit bins on hills and roundabouts [with operatives to spread salt and assist traffic] and smaller spreaders might have made a big difference to Norwich yesterday helping to keep vehicles moving. Of course, failing to ensure that there is an adequate public transport network is largely to blame for the present chaos - so many places in Norfolk are virtually cut off unless people drive and once they've got a car they're not going to go back to the buses and trains [partly because there aren't any!].
