Ik kreeg gisteren het volgende bericht van AFPOP binnen â€¦.
Due to the very high temperatures over these last few weeks, the surface on some roads has begun to melt in places. This fine coat on the roads can make them slippery, and some roads can become hazardous, especially on bends or at junctions. We know of two people who have had their cars spin on them whilst driving.
We advise members to be extremely careful when driving on these hot days, especially on bends and at cross roads. Remember to leave some extra breaking distance when approaching junctions or travelling in traffic and check that your tires are properly inflated and that the tread has not picked up tar which has cooled and filled in the tread.
Please drive carefully and avoid disaster by being aware of the road surface.

Leuk dat een organisatie zich op deze manier zorgen maakt om zijn leden.
By the way â€¦. AFPOP is een vereniging van buitenlandse ingezetenen en bezoekers van Portugal.
