YANBU. It makes sense to take a taxi, if he is able to get one as they will probably be in demand.

Where i live there is a 3 hour wait fo taxis and they are charging double - and not guaranteeing they will come out after nightfall.

Why would a taxi be any safer than driving yourself?

Yes, but not necessarily for your DH - it depends on whether the taxi driver is less likely to be involved in an accident than you are.

Personally, I would prefer to drive myself than rely on a taxi (particularly given the issues blu says). I would drive myself, and take absolutely as long as I needed, rather than possibly be thinking about getting to the next fare

YANBU - taxi drivers are, on the whole, professionals who are used to driving in all conditions. Hopefully if he can get one, it will be the best solution for all of you.

If you're seriously worried that there's a strong chance of an accident, get him to book into b and b overnight and pick him up when its safer

Personally, if it were that bad, I'd be equally concerned about my DH as about myself and children.

And FGS get your dodgy tyres sorted - or it might be YOU causing an accident

I wouldnt be going out in this weather with dodgy tires. I would do teh taxi.

Good luck Kerry. Needs must and all that.

Just go very slow and pray a lot.

GrimmaTheNome Sat 18-Dec-10 15:43:24

Good luck - hopefully there won't be too many other people out.

I infer you have to take the dc with you - is there any possibility of leaving them with a neighbour so that at least you're not worrying about them too?

SandStorm Sat 18-Dec-10 15:53:13

Good luck - take it slowly and very carefully. Is there anyone you can leave the children with so they're warm and cosy somewhere or is that not an option?

earwicga Sat 18-Dec-10 15:55:44

FFS, why are you taking your children out when you know you can't drive in the conditions.

IT'S THREE MILES - TELL HIM TO WALK!

Gogopops Sat 18-Dec-10 15:58:34

Walking sounds the most sensible option. But if he has 'flu' should he be going out anyway??

earwicga Sat 18-Dec-10 16:02:52

He hasn't got flu if he is able to leave the house.

He might not even get a taxi, they've called them all back in here.

violethill Sat 18-Dec-10 16:45:46

Walking sounds safest all round tbh
