Missouri on Ice
All of their crews are out on the road right now and they are preparing for the worst.
"Currently we are applying salt to our roadways to prevent the freezing rain from sticking to the roadway and also melting ice that has accumulated," says Mike Teel, MoDOT maintenance. "There's some sleet in other parts of the district and we're plowing that out."
MoDOT says everyone should stay home if possible, but if you must go out on the roads, drive slowly and allow for extra time. You should take extra precaution when driving over bridges or overpasses.
One other thing that can help if you must drive is adding extra weight to your car. You can do this by putting sandbags in your trunk.
