Drivers urged to use caution as icing could cause slick roads, sidewalks
Icing during the night has created dangerous roads conditions today, especially in the southern parts of New Jersey.
Drivers at the Cheesequake rest stop in South Amboy say they were relieved to see trucks salting the main roads, but are still preparing for slippery conditions.
Hackensack resident JoAnn Caruso says roads were mainly clear in the area.
“Everything looks good here so we were pleasantly surprised,” Caruso says. “We were going slow so the roads look good, coming up this way, we saw a lot of the trucks out throwing down the salt, which is a good thing.”
Black ice on front stairs, sidewalks, driveways and roadways are still a concern.
Drivers and pedestrians should be careful and assume all surfaces have not been salted.
