A spokesman for The AA, said: "The thing about driving in snow in the UK is drivers take a little longer to get into their winter driving mindset.
"They their speed and allow for more distance between them and the car in front.
"There is that first one to three hours when we are mostly looking to see accidents, because drivers are getting used to the snow.
"We want them to get into this frame of mind quicker.
"It just takes one accident to block a road and this just aggravates the situation with the snow."
The AA is also urging drivers to check their routes are clear before setting off and deciding whether the journey is neccesary.
A spokesman for The AA said: "Drivers need to check the road ahead before they leave.
"Once you get off the main roads, it becomes a different situation for drivers."
