MHP: Still too soon to drive over icy roads

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

The wintry mix is gone.  And that has people starting to venture our on area roads.  That may be a big mistake.

WLOX News just heard from Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Jason Gazzo.  He noted roads remain slick.  Consequently, they're sliding off the pavement, and causing accidents.  The MHP spokesman encourages you to remain at home and let the ice melt off roads.

MDOT along with city and county public works crews are out this morning sanding and salting roadways.
