TRIMARC: If you don't have to drive in bad weather, don't drive

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metro Louisville dodged much of the storm Wednesday, seeing some snow, but mostly rain.

In downtown Louisville, the roads were wet and traffic was moving slowly Wednesday afternoon.

TRIMARC was monitoring road conditions throughout Kentuckiana using about 80 traffic cameras.

There were several crashes early in the morning when roads got icy, but that quickly turned into wet, slippery roads.

TRIMARC is just reminding people to be extra cautious today.

"If you don't have to go, don't go," said Jim Mallory of Trimarc. "That's the best tip in the world -- especially [for] those people north of here, where the snow is so bad. Slow down. Increase your following distance. Be prepared to stop suddenly."

Louisville Metro Government says if roads need to be salted or they get icy, then crews will be out quickly.

The city was not able to pre-treat the roads because the rain would have washed it away.
