A winter weather advisory is in effect for North Texas today. There is a good chance of freezing temperatures and rain that could leave a sheet of ice on our roads and bridges.
By Saturday night, the wind chill may be almost zero degrees. We may break all-time low records on Sunday. The roads could be treacherous by then.
Texans rarely have to drive on dangerous streets, so the chance of being in a car or truck crash will multiply. Hitting a patch of ice could lead to disaster.
Here is a real-time map that will help you plan a safe route from DriveTexas.org.
The problem is compounded because other drivers will forget to slow down. Others will continue to text and drive. Even worse, some will drink and drive.
Unfortunately, police officers and emergency rooms (and yes, personal injury lawyers) will be busier than usual.
