Black ice is causing problems across the county today with numerous accidents leading to road closures and long delays.
A section of the B2036 London Road between Balcombe and Crawley was closed due to sheet ice while a further section of the Haywards Heath Road between Balcombe and Borde Hill was closed due to an accident.
Between midnight and 7.45am today (Monday 28 January), police say there have been more than 80 crashes on the county’s roads, mainly in rural areas.
More than 30 of these have involved single vehicles sliding off the road due to the ice, which is difficult to spot and widespread after the weekend’s heavy rain.
Injuries involved in this mornings traffic incidents are not yet known.
Sussex Police spokesman said; “Rush hour drivers are urged to take it easy on the roads, especially outside towns. The ice cannot readily be spotted, so please slow down and allow extra time for your journey.”
