As city and state crews worked to clear Central Indiana roads and highways Tuesday night, drivers who ventured out say slow and steady was the only way to travel.

Many drivers said the main roads and secondary roads were slushy.

“Side streets are really slick. I don’t wanna slide into any parked cars,” said Jacqueline Frost.

Driver Pat McGuinness said driving defensively is the key.

“Just go the speed limit and go easy and drive defensively and stay out of the way of people who are acting erratically,” said McGuinness.

State and city road crews had a full call out of drivers working 12-hour shifts.

Both INDOT and Indy Snow Force say they will maintain those 12-hour shifts as long as necessary.
