Partnership chairman Mike Ashworth said: “At this time of year lots of holidaymakers will be using motorways and trunk roads to travel outside their own region.
“The Highways Agency - which is a member of the road safety partnership – is responsible for managing these roads and it offers motorists a range of services designed to make journey planning easier.”
Mike added: “We’re encouraging holidaymakers to take the stress out of long and unfamiliar journeys by taking advantage of what the Highways Agency has to offer.
“We’re also recommending that holidaymakers check their car battery, oil, tyres and lights before setting off.”
