Extreme Cold Following Snowstorm Leads To Icy Roads For Morning Commute
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The storm may be gone, but low temperatures have led to icy conditions on Utah’s roads Tuesday morning.
The Utah Highway Patrol reported troopers had responded to more than 300 crashes Monday, noting that most of the incidents were caused by bald tires.
Drivers are urged to reduce their speed and keep a safe distance from other cars during icy, snowy or wet road conditions. Commuters who find themselves beginning to slide or spin on road ice should avoid slamming on the breaks, experts said. Tap the brake pedal instead.
