All it takes is a little snow and Illinois roads turn into an icy slip and slide. We saw this earlier today as I-74 was briefly stopped in both directions due to numerous accidents. Drone footage from Sky 3 shows just how bad the roads became during the peak snowfall. Once again it goes to show that even just an inch of snow can cause problems on the roadways. It's not only the snow though, it's also the distracted/aggressive drivers that are not paying attention to the conditions. Situations like these are why we advocate not driving in the wintry conditions. It may not be you driving poorly, but unfortunately as many have found out, you may be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Icy conditions will continue through the next 36 to 48 hours across the state. Portions of northern Illinois may even see more snow on Wednesday which may further complicate travel. Stay tuned for further updates and please be safe out there on the roads!
