Predictable chaos

Once again an ill-prepared Scotland, despite warnings days in ­advance about severe weather, has been affected badly by mismanagement and incompetent travel planning.

My elderly parents were stuck for more than five hours in a massive traffic jam caused by a lorry overturning on the Friarton Bridge on Thursday.

The police advised lorry drivers not to use bridges due to high winds but some decided to go ahead anyway causing travel disruption to all. What earthly use is it for police to issue an order and then not to enforce it?

The lorry drivers should be heavily fined for disobeying police orders and there should be an investigation into why police are not enforcing gtheir own rules.
