Don't clog roads with unnecessary traffic

By The Staff

The snow is falling and forecasters are predicting ice to follow. The majority of Grant County residents only ventured out on Tuesday, Jan. 27 if they needed to get to work or had to be somewhere, but there were a few who decided to test their four-wheel drive vehicles on the roads.

That’s just not smart, especially when a Level Two Snow Emergency has been declared. This type of emergency doesn’t mean the roads are closed, but it means that travel on them only if necessary.

If you’re not sure of whether you should try and get to work, call your employer and ask if you are required to come in or can make other arrangements.

Thumbs down to those drivers goofy enough to drive “just because.”
