ACT Policing is urging drivers looking to experience snow in local mountains to pay attention to road closures and drive to conditions.

A large number of roads in the Brindabellas have been closed due to the substantial snow falls over the past 36 hours.

Police today have assisted a number of drivers who have found themselves on un-driveable roads.

Police have also observed drivers attempting to drive around road closure barriers. This is both irresponsible and dangerous.

The time for the closures can vary from several hours to several days depending on the prevailing weather conditions.

Drivers are also reminded to drive to the winter weather conditions. When visibility is poor turn your lights on, reduce your speed and increase your braking distance. Make sure that all your windows are clear of fog or frost before driving off.
