RPD NEWS RELEASE
The Reno Fire Department is urging motorists to drive with caution as snow and ice have made roads slippery throughout Reno and the Truckee Meadows.
The department advises motorists to adjust their driving habits with the change of road conditions by slowing down, allowing extra time to get to the destination and allowing extra stopping distance between vehicles.
“Local weather reports are forecasting ice and fog over the next few days. Please plan for and use extra caution when driving though slippery roadway conditions,” added Reno Fire Chief Michael Hernandez.
As of Sunday evening, RFD had responded to more than 30 motor vehicle accidents. The early morning commute has also proven a challenge for drivers with multiple accidents reported. Current road conditions may be reviewed online at nvroads.com.
