Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash is reminding local residents to take care when driving on the area’s roads.
The reminder comes as parts of the Shoalhaven have received over 400mm of rain in the past 36 hours making driving conditions extremely dangerous in parts of the City.
“It is important that local residents limit their use of local roads and only drive when completely necessary,” said Clr Gash.
“If people do need to travel then it is vitally important that they use care and drive to the conditions.
“With parts of the Shoalhaven receiving over 400mm of rain it is inevitable that some parts of the area’s road network may break up and pothole.”
The Mayor said she was very concerned with reports from local Police that some motorists are choosing to ignore road closure signs.
“Local motorists are reminded that driving through floodwaters is extremely dangerous and should not be done under any circumstances,” said Clr Gash.
“Motorists are also asked to abide by all road closure signage and reminded that failure to follow these directives will void all car insurance should they become stuck in water.”
