BALLYMONEY and the North Antrim area was badly affected by the recent snowfall in the last week, after an amber weather warning for snow and ice was put in place on Tuesday, January 16.
Many commuters found driving conditions treacherous, with roads difficult to drive in, particularly along the Newbridge Road and the A26, with one commuter saying it took them nearly two hours to get home to Bendooragh from work in Antrim.
Aaron said, "Driving to work in Antrim was a nightmare. On Tuesday night, it took me two hours to get home due to the poor weather conditions. On Wednesday morning, I had to leave at 7.30am to be in work by 8.30.
“Driving down, from Ballymoney to Ballymena was terrible. Some drivers were better than others, but it was people flying in the fast lane that was bad. There was slush and snow flying from the back of their car into windscreens of drivers in the left lane. There was no consideration for others at all."
