Sheriff Babb: Stay off roads today

Fayette County Sheriff Barry Babb said despite the many traffic issues on roads around the county on Tuesday there were no traffic fatalities and no serious injuries.

“The real heroes were the school bus drivers,” said Babb Wednesday morning. “They did a great job getting the kids home.”

With temperatures in the teens Wednesday morning and a forecast high only in the mid-30s, Babb recommended that motorists stay off roadways unless absolutely necessary.

Babb cautioned that, if driving is necessary, motorists use particular caution on roads with steep grades.

Babb said deputies are patrolling roads today, noting that many of the patrol units are outfitted with tire chains for extra traction on icy roads.
