Snow making driving difficult

Posted:

Mother Nature did a number on the roads Wednesday morning making driving tough in Michiana.

In Berrien County, drivers could be seen sliding off 1-94 near Benton Harbor. The Toll Road wasn't much better as poor conditions made for slick driving. Indiana State Police noted that the stretch of the toll road in Laporte County saw significant delays.

Officials say when the roads are hazardous it's important to give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. It's also important to limit the number of distractions like the radio or your cell phone.

The winter weather could not have come at a worse time. The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year. Triple A estimates that over 40 million Americans will travel away from home on Wednesday.
