Treacherous Road Conditions

Has anyone else noticed that with all the rain recently in Britain, the roads are bonkers slippy?

In winter I counciously take extra care due to the potential for ice etc. This summer I have noticed that the roads are very greasy/slippery.

It has made for a few extra smiles at lower speeds, but I would not relish the though of something unexpected happening during sprited driving on public road with walls and trees etc.

I am being extra careful, suggest you are too. Thanks for reading.

We had very bad rain on saturday and I managed to get the back end out on one occasion. Mind you, theres cheap no-name tyres on the rears so I'm sure they had something to do with it

dry weather results in a build up of rubber and oils on the road surface add a bit of water and things get hairy.
