JONESBORO -- Roadways are expected to create dangerous driving conditions by sunrise. We spoke to the State Highway Department today to find out what preparations are in place.
Although the State Highway Department isn't spreading the salt or sand just yet...the plan is in place.
Depending on the type of weather that hits, ice or snow, the State Police will contact the State Highway Department to let them know where the first freeze hits.
However, if you must hit the roads...keep these tips in mind.
"Maintain your speed if you're traveling 20, 25 or 30, don't be accelerating and slowing down. When you start to slow down, or when you start to accelerate, is when you'll start fishtailing. And above all do not follow close," says Sgt. Benny Cox, Arkansas State Police.
