With the steady, day-long snow fall, comes wet, messy, slick roads.

In several cities across northeast Ohio, there are no mistaking the tell tale signs of accidents.  In one instance, evidence of a motorist driving too fast for the weather conditions, is shown by the car's tracks going right through a road sign.

Police say that they one man was ticketed after he slid into the back of a stopped RTA bus.  The passengers and driver of the bus were all unharmed.

By early evening ODOT crews had plowed the major roads and highways.

Most of the motorists we spoke with said they had no problems driving in the snow.

But Jose at Universal Auto Repair, who was supposed be off at 2:30 p.m., anticipates a long night.

"You know I am going to continue all night because my boss needs me."

Many ODOT workers say that they will work 12 hour shifts plowing and putting salt on roads.
