CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The City of Conway is reporting there are roadways in city limits that are partially covered with patches of ice.
"Drivers are reminded to exercise extreme caution while driving over or approaching bridges, over passes, intersections, and sections of roadway that are shaded," a city communication states.
Public Work crews are applying sand to icy street within the city, officials stated. There are also concerns of downed power lines and trees in roadways. These conditions should be reported to the Conway Police Department at 248-1790.
Here are some reminders about driving in icy or slick road conditions from the City of Conway:
Reduce your speed. You will be more likely to maintain control of your vehicle at lower speeds. Slow down when approaching intersections, off-ramps, bridges or shady spots. Increase your following distance to at least three times what you would normally have between you and the vehicle in front of you. Also, never slam on your brakes, either use a steady pumping action, or simplify remove your foot from the accelerator.
