December 1, 2019

The Steuben County Sheriff’s Department has issued a travel advisory (no unnecessary travel in Steuben County until further notice). “Both primary and secondary roadways have had multiple crashes this morning,” said Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard. “If travel is necessary please allow for extra time and be vigilant for icy roadways, especially on bridges and elevated roadways.”

The travel advisory has been lifted in Livingston County, though the sheriff there, Sheriff Tom Dougherty, warns that not all roads are in good condition.

The same goes for Livingston County too, there is a travel advisory there as well. “The large majority of the crashes and vehicles going off the road are caused by operators driving too fast for the conditions and outside of their ability. Deputy Sheriffs will be issuing tickets for speeds improper for conditions where appropriate,” said Livingston County Sheriff Tom Dougherty.

In Allegany County, there is a Winter Weather Advisory. From the National Weather Service: Periods of sleet or freezing rain will result in slippery roads. Slow down and use caution while driving.
