More than a week after the second major storm ended, area motorists and pedestrians should still be alert and aware when driving and/or walking.
- With snow melting during the daytime hours, and temperatures dropping below freezing at night, black ice can form. Extra caution in driving and walking is advised.
- Proceed with extreme caution when approaching an intersection where the line of sight may be blocked by mounds of snow.
- Stay alert for pedestrians walking in the roadways.
- Watch out for pedestrians wearing hats and hoods that impede their vision and hearing, or those wearing dark clothing that makes pedestrians difficult to see during evening hours.
The blizzards produced recorded breaking snow falls. We must now work together to reclaim our sidewalks and provide safe pedestrian pathways.
