Drive slower if you must travel
The posted speed limit is too fast on icy roads, Mississippi Highway Patrol Cpl. Craig James cautions, as Lincoln County and surrounding areas are in the midst of a winter storm.
“Travel is extremely discouraged. But if you must, please slow down. Roadway conditions in Troop M are continuing to worsen and most wrecker services are not responding to calls,” said James.
Highways, interstates, bridges and elevated roads are considered the most dangerous at this time.
