Icy Conditions Expected to Get Worse on NC Roadways
Posted on behalf of Harbin & Burnett on Jan 31, 2014 in Auto Accidents
The National Weather Service in NC has gone ahead and issued an important weather alert for most of North Carolina as of yesterday afternoon. As temperatures across North Carolina begin to climb just above freezing throughout the day, weather meteorologist warned that more melting snow is bound to occur causing an increase in dangerous roads, as the late night temperatures turn it back into black ice.
Praising how the state residents have weathered this weeks' cold snap thus far, Gov. Pat McCrory urged those on the roads to continue to exercise caution even as conditions improved.
"It doesn't matter how experienced you are as a driver, no one can safely drive on black ice," McCrory said Yesterday. Now is not the time to be stupid.
The statement made by our NC Governor is well stated, as we already have already had several deaths occur due to several traffic accidents that took place on these dangerous icy roads. On Wednesday, two people died in unrelated traffic accidents in Surry County. On Thursday, there was another incident where a truck driver lost control of his tractor-trailer causing an accident on Interstate 40 in Burke County.
Road Crews across the state will continue to spread salt, sand, and brine on major highways. Since the state does not have all the necessary resources to treat all of the dangerous roads in our area, we advise all motorists to drive with great caution.
