COLLEGE STATION, Texas The College Station Police Department is gearing up for another potential night of icy roads.
Just four days ago icy streets and highways prompted more than a hundred calls for police assistance for wrecks and other traffic problems in Brazos County alone.
This could be round two and police are warning drivers to be careful.
College Station Police dispatchers and 9-1-1 operators could be in for another busy night and early morning.
They will be an important center of information communicating with police and the public.
"They receive information not only from the officers out on the street but then citizens phoning in and then we depend upon our communication section to then act as liaison with other agencies such as TxDOT or our public works to get to those problem locations in an attempt to treat the roadways to make them safer," said Lt. Chuck Fleeger.
Police recommend you stay off icy roads when possible but if you must drive, drive slowly and leave extra space between you and other vehicles.
