JANESVILLE--Traffic is having a hard time getting up Court Street and Center Avenue hills due to the slippery road conditions, in Janesville.
Well done frusion. Sadly, it won't make a difference. :(
please slow down & use your signal lights
I'm kidding about the v rated tires. I can't afford them. But I am one of "those" with the 16" performance tires and they suck in snow.
fru - how are they working for you today?A "V" speed rating probably is not needed for today's roads. Maybe tomorrow?
So Emmo, my V rated tires are no good for Wisconsin weather?
Some folks are finding out that those "cool" 18" wheels and low-profile high performance tires don't really "perform" at all in the snow.Tire technology and design has changed a lot in the recent years. If your tires are not at least M&S (mud & snow) rated, stay home. If you want to be able to drive in the snow we commonly get in Wisconsin, get tires that have the "Mountain/snowflake" symbol...snow tires.Of, course the tire companies promote this, and get to sell you two sets of tires, summer ones and winter ones.Conspiracy?
dakman, I think you're right, he probably hadn't been on duty long. When I was there, there were people spinning tires on the bridge before they even got as far as the hill. By the time I got across the bridge, he was directing traffic to give people the following distance they needed. It was enough to begin clearing things out, finally. Still got my daughter to school late, but we made it there in one piece, and with no vehicle damage. I'll take that as a success for the morning.
nonprofiter, he must have gotten there later. Me and about 30 other cars were stuck behind two idiots trying to make it up the small hill after the lights on Center (near the VFW).
LOL yeah steep hills, slushy snow/rain mix and starting from a dead stop, this is why I avoid those routes when it snows, I have been behind vehicles with bald tires more than once.
speaking of self righteous...
I finally overcame my ADD. I was able to get through this whole article without being distracted.
These aren't articles people, they are blogs. Get over your self righteous selves and move on to torment someone else's day. SMH
Thank you to the JPD officer who was directing traffic at Center Ave. and Delavan Drive this morning. Dangerous work, did his best to keep us all safe. Kudos.
Less than 1 inch of snow expected... LOL

Sure glad I wasted .75 seconds reading this bone chilling article. Come on gazette, put something in here worth looking at.
Yes, JoyM, and it was written by a staff.
