COMMON SENSE VICTORY: no traffic warden car park fines at all in Guernsey and Jersey today say @GuernseyPolice and #TTS.

States of Jersey ‏@StatesofJersey
TTS will waive parking fines today and accept payment for a day's parking. This only effects the 13 drivers who didn't put up paycards.

Stuart Syvret ‏@StuartSyvret
Looking at conditions, I wouldn't be out in this without wearing my mountaineering gear. Most roads impassable, most people walking.....

Stuart Syvret ‏@StuartSyvret
......sadly, would not be surprised if some people on foot ended up dying in this; falls, exhaustion, hypothermia.

Stuart Syvret ‏@StuartSyvret
...not even sure Jersey emergency services have enough suitable vehicles to be combing roads for exhausted walkers.

Kevin Stewart ‏@kevinstewartgsy

Dan obviously doesn't know his way round Trinity. If he wanted to get to Egypt, he needed to turn left :)
