Salisbury Police Department Urges Drivers To Stay Off Roadways - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Salisbury Police Department Urges Drivers To Stay Off Roadways

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The Salisbury Police Department is urging everyone across Delmarva to avoid driving Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

Authorities say the combination of snow and blowing snow can reduce visibility to below one-half mile at times, and below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, street salt becomes ineffective at melting ice, which can mean some slick roadways.

In just Salisbury on Tuesday, police reported at least six accidents by the afternoon.

"That number will probably increase," says Paul Simon, captain of operations with the Salisbury Police Department. "That's why we really encourage the citizens that don't have to be out and about to stay home, that way it allows the public works officials and emergency responding officials do their job."

Captain Simon also is urging drivers to make sure all windows and headlights are clear before traveling. If drivers do not do this, not only could it affect their life and others, but it could also result in a ticket.
