With severe weather warnings in Sydney in effect for much of the Queen's Birthday long weekend - and rain set to continue falling in the NSW capital and surrounding areas until later in the week - keeping drivers safe on the roads is a top priority.
Severe weather warnings were issued yesterday (June 11) by the NSW SES, which responded to more than 200 calls for assistance within a 12-hour period on the holiday Monday.
Between 09:00 and 17:30 local time, areas of the harbour city recorded between 20 mm and 30mm of rainfall - and driver were urged to use common sense, bear the conditions of the road in mind and avoid any roads or highways affected by flooding.
As local councils continue to battle the elements over the next few days, variable message signs (VMS) might be one product well worth considering.
These can be hired as and when they are required, and can display customised messages - ideal for managing traffic and staying on top of unpredictable wet weather conditions.
From sharing information about specific road closures to providing motorists with up-to-date weather reports, a VMS can be the perfect tool to help drivers manage the winter weather and stay safe on the roads.
