WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Due to freezing rain and extremely hazardous driving conditions, the Winston-Salem police strongly advises people to remain at home and avoid traveling.
In the Winston-Salem area, primary roadways have been plowed and salted from the onset of the storm, but still consist of packed snow covered by ice. These conditions offer minimal traction.
Secondary roadways have not been plowed and are virtually impassable.
Several vehicles have been abandoned on the interstates, interstate ramps and city streets.
Officials suggest travel be limited to emergency situations only.
Motorists are cautioned, that if they are involved in minor accidents or become immobile, they may experience delays with police assistance or towing facilities due to a high volume of calls for service.
