Del. Drivers Avoid Icy Roads

Posted:

MILTON, Del. - After the snow stopped falling Monday night, the roads remained icy and slippery, making conditions unsafe for drivers. 

With the official start of spring less than three weeks away, many people just can't believe how cold it is outside.

Frank Makray lives in Milton and only left his home today to walk his dog and shovel the sidewalk. The road conditions were so bad he didn't even have the option to pull his car out of the garage.

"Behind my house they did not [plow] so I could not get out," he said. "So I shoveled as much as I can."

Cliff McCall decided to make a quick trip to the grocery store, and said he won't go out again until the roads are less slippery.

"I'm pretty brave, I'm pretty brave, I live two blocks away, I thought about walking but it's pretty cold out so decided to drive instead," he explained. "No more driving at all, I had my fill."

Drivers on Milton roads were screeching on the brakes and driving as slowly as possible to avoid losing control.

DELDOT crews as well as private companies laid out salt and sand, but the cold temperatures still kept the roads icy.
