Today with snow all over the roadways here in the Pacific Northwest, roadway travel was limited. Those that had to go out faced conditions of icy roads, continuous snow flakes or ice rain and side roads that were difficult to navigate.
Out there, crazy drivers went too fast, followed too close and tried to go up or down roadways that were simply in no condition for travel. One thing that I did observe was number truck drivers on the snowy roadways and I did not seen a single incident of unsafe driving. I saw truck drivers going slowly, maintaining a safe following distance and avoiding hills.
Unfortunately, there were several Truck crashes on the highways. For example, a semi-truck crashed through a guard rail near Olympia. Often, these crashes are due to Truck drivers traveling too fast for winter driving conditions.
The winter weather conditions will hopefully improve soon.
