State police say roads are passable
State troopers in the district covering Peoria, Tazewell, Woodford, Marshall, and Stark Counties have responded to more than 30 motorist assists and 10 vehicle crashes during the winter storm that hit the area.
State police say if motorists must travel, they should allow for plenty of time, drive slow, have a charged cell phone and pack an emergency kit.
Drivers are also being reminded to move over for emergency vehicles responding to accidents as well as for maintenance vehicles and tow trucks. Failure to do so could result in fines, driver’s license suspension, and possible jail time.
