January 18, 2017 (Lincoln, Neb.)  — Wednesday morning again proved the need for drivers to be prepared for road and weather conditions that can quickly change. Heavy overnight frost and morning black ice caused hazardous driving conditions in several areas across Nebraska, and several crashes were reported. It was an unfriendly reminder following last weekend’s ice storm, and the Nebraska State Patrol encourages drivers to continue to be aware and cautious when driving.

Thanks to drivers awareness and preparation, and the efforts of the Nebraska Department of Roads, County, and Municipal roadway maintenance personnel, roads were kept as safe as possible during the storm. Crews worked countless hours over the weekend and through the Monday holiday to ensure the safety of the public. Those efforts helped keep the number of crashes and injuries to a minimum. “We’d like to thank the public for heeding the advance warnings and for being prepared for this event,” said Colonel Brad Rice, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. 

Despite warmer temperatures in the forecast, Colonel Rice urges drivers to continue to travel with caution. “There are still very slick roads across Nebraska, and with low overnight temperatures, refreezing is again possible. So continue to drive with care, and always buckle your seatbelts.” ###
