A hole new way to drive

Listeners to WBBM‘s traffic reports were treated to a litany of pothole sightings, many more than usual. Potholes were sighted along Route 12, Fairfield Road near Route 176, and others that unfortunately I do not recall. Sadly, I doubt that any were as honorable as this one.

The evening slog, though less sponge-like, included a generous amount of icy sleet and accidents of varying severity. Lake County Passage radio AM 1620 reported accidents on Route 60 near Route 176,and Peterson Road and Route 45. I suspect that the resulting traffic slowdowns squeezed motorists onto the other roads, as there truly was no speedy route home tonight for drivers. Your mileage, of course, may have varied.

And still – snowfall is expected to continue through Wednesday, laying a fresh coat of precipitation over the pothole grid.

[Update] Tragic Tuesday:
Head-on crash in Volo Tuesday morning injured two motorists.

Be careful out there, everyone.
