Road conditions in Michigan treacherous

Posted: Updated:

In southeast Michigan, residents did not get a break from the constant snowfall. It's not how many would have welcomed in the new year, but they're dealing with it.

"It's pretty icy out there so we've been trying to go at a slow pace," says Toledoan Jake Frankel.

Drivers along Toledo's interstates capped their speeds at 40 to 50 miles per hour along 475 westbound and onto us 23 northbound.

"It's been pretty rough. I have a 4-wheel drive so I'm lucky but when we were driving up in Michigan, we saw a car spin out right in front of us and hit a guardrail," said Mark Davis, a Toledo resident.

Although Toledo is dealing with a lot of snow, drivers say road conditions up north are worse. The snowfall was constant in Whiteford, Michigan and residents are sure feeling it.

"It's pretty rough, part of living here though," said Jeff Sampson. Residents in southeast Michigan are dealing with an inch or two more than the folks in Toledo.

Area truck drivers we talked with say the roads are treacherous.
