Eau Claire (WQOW)- The State Patrol is saying the snow storm is worse in other parts of the state and doesn't measure up to what we saw in Eau Claire two weeks ago. But it has still created dangerous conditions.
"If you don't have to travel today, stay home," says Captain Jeffrey Frenette with the Wisconsin State Patrol.
The State Patrol is advising drivers to avoid the roads as the snow piles up once again.
In Eau Claire, plows have done a good job clearing snow from the main highways, but there have been a number of accidents.
"Right now, we've got a number of semi's that are in the median and ditch," reveals Frenette. "Fortunately, nothing real serious, but it still takes time away from our other duties to respond to those and handle those kinds of calls; a number of run-offs. Drivers are just going way too fast."
For drivers that choose not to listen, tickets will be handed out.
"Driving too fast for conditions is often a violation that we see and we take action on," Frenette says.
The Friday before Christmas tends to be the busiest travel day of the year. People often want to leave work early to spend more time with family. The State Patrol says being a little more patient this year will pay off.
"If you can delay it by a day, that might be great advice," Frenette points out. "It's going to be some time for them to get things cleaned up."
