Severe weather alters schedule for truck drivers


The winter weather is messing up plans for truck drivers.

With severe weather just west of Michiana, INDOT put a ban on certain types of trucks.

Drivers we spoke to say dicey roads can affect their schedule greatly.

"With the roads being icy you gotta slow down, you really gotta slow down, and we are on a clock, its a 14 hour clock, the longer it takes you, you can get stuck anywhere," says Terrie Cox a truck driver.

The ban was for larger trucks and those hauling steel.
