Problems For Drivers During Latest Winter Storm

Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del. - Snow blanketed much of the roads throughout Delmarva.

A common sight this winter as snow plows again clean up many roads during this latest blast of winter.

But despite the efforts, driver's experienced this crunching sound of snow hitting wheels Monday on the roads.

It was a  non-issue for some drivers in Seaford.

Others like Tyler Elliott didn't fare so well. He tells WMDT he almost lost control of his car.
     
"[While I was driving] my tire wasn't even spinning," said Elliott. "My back tire, it was literally, someone was telling me my tire was sliding right along."

A common commuter problem reported on this March snow day.

"I got a little [Jeep Cherokee Sport] and she's still spinning and fishtailing all over the place," said Tony Pearson of Seaford, Del.

According to DelDOT, 400 workers went up and down primary roads, including Route 13 from Kent County to Sussex County plowing and salting all day Monday.  Jim Westhoff says they plan to work until the job gets done and the roads are safe.

"We still have a lot of work ahead of us," said Westhoff. "We need to keep on the secondary and back roads and get those plowed, because those roads have not been plowed yet so we have a lot of roads left in Delaware."

Delaware State Police says they responded to a number of snow-related issues throughout the state, including 85 crashes and 55 disabled vehicles.

Gov. Jack Markell lifted the State of Emergency with a Level One Driving Warning for Kent County right at 6PM and in Sussex County,  that will be lifted at 8 PM.
