Should I drive if there is a weather warning?
If possible, you should avoid driving no matter the warning level. Driving in a yellow warning may not pose a likely risk, but there is likely to be increased congestion and disruption on the road. Driving in amber and red warnings pose a greater risk, therefore travel should be avoided unless absolutely essential.
Is my insurance valid if I drive during a red weather warning?
Driving during a weather warning does not automatically invalidate your insurance but making a claim may be more difficult.
If your insurer can prove negligence (i.e driving on a road when advised not to) they could refuse your claim. If in doubt, avoid driving during red weather warnings.
