A Cambridgeshire police spokesperson said: “While not all of these crashes resulted in injuries, please drive to the condition of the road. Reduce your speed if it’s icy, snowing or raining.️

“Consider the ‘fatal four’ most common causes of road deaths - always wear your seatbelt, don’t speed, don’t drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol and don’t use your mobile whilst driving.”
