TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

It's illegal for anyone not considered essential personnelto be driving during a level 3 snow emergency.

Lucas County was under a level 3 most of the day Wednesday,and sheriff's deputies were out pulling over drivers.

"Lucas County is under a level three snowemergency so I'm checking to see why you're out and about driving around," DeputyChristopher Archer told one driver.

Archer says the goal is to keep everyone safe.

"We are in fact pulling people over, seeingwhat they're doing, issuing citations. We take this seriously and we want thepublic to take this seriously as well," said Archer.

During our ride along with deputies, they stopped another lawenforcement officer headed home from work, and a nurse headed to work. Both areconsider essential personnel.

Deputies also stopped a coupling driving home from thehospital. Though they weren't technically supposed to be on the roads, deputiesgave them a warning because of the circumstances.

Archer says he only issued one citation on Wednesday. That wasto a man who got stuck in the snow driving home from the grocery store.

"We can't do our jobs as effectively if we'reconstantly helping people get out of ditches and responding to people gettingstuck in the roadway," said Archer.

Archer says for the most part, Lucas Countyresidents did a good job staying off the roads and staying safe Wednesday.
