Winter Storm Carol causes slick roads

 

BROWN COUNTY – Be careful if you’re driving tonight.

Here is the latest Department of Transportation road conditions report.

Just after 8 p.m., the State Patrol told FOX 11 it responded to 43 runoffs and 9 crashes throughout Monday. No injuries were reported.

With snow arriving around noon, it was slow going on Northeast Wisconsin roads for the second half of the day.

“I don’t care who is behind me, just that they take their time and stay far back at a distance is my main thing,” said Jessica Scott of De Pere. “I hate it when someone is behind me really close.”

The snow picked up about 3 o’clock, just in time for many people’s commute home.

“Other drivers seem to be driving pretty slow,” said Dustin Hendricks of Green Bay. “For the most part here and there you get one that will just pop out in front of you, but that’s not safe at all.”

“Take your time and be patient is the big thing in this type of weather,” said Captain Randy Schultz with the Brown County Sheriff’s Department.

Law enforcement agencies like the Brown County Sheriff’s Department stepped up patrols for rush hour.

“If we have visible presence, we seem to have peace in the park, but you never know how long we can stay there,” said Schultz.

The snow was still coming down as the drive home started to reach its end. The condition of the roads varied depending on who you asked.

“I think it’s a little worse now,” said Karl Toebe of Green Bay. “It doesn’t seem like there’s a lot of plowed roads down the side roads and stuff. They’re getting built up.”

“I thought they did a pretty good job today,” said John Kramer of Pittsfield. “Plows are out. I’ve seen it on the weekends when plows aren’t even out.”
