Officers Navigate Difficult Road Conditions

Posted: Updated:

 

Public safety crews have been out responding to anything that comes up.
     
Rock Island County sheriff's deputies we talked to say there weren't too many issues on New Year's Day. That's probably because the holiday had fewer people on the roads. But no matter the conditions, officers themselves are still out.

They too have to take it slow when going from call to call and be extra aware of their surroundings to stay safe.

"You kind of almost have to have eyes in the back of your head," said Deputy Patrick Veronda. "You have to deal with a car in the ditch and have to constantly be scanning traffic as it goes by."
     
Officers suggest if you have to be out on the road, give yourself extra time and since frigid temps are ahead, they suggest having things like extra clothes and a blanket in the car.
