It's a lot easier to drive around Rockford now than just a few hours ago. I had some close calls on my way to work today, but looks like that drive home will be a lot easier. That's because the City of Rockford has 25 trucks out plowing and salting, and they're expected to be on the roads until three o'clock this morning.
Rockford police are still out and about answering calls for fender benders. So far they've seen several dozen accidents, but luckily nothing too serious. Now for surrounding cities like Machesney Park and Loves Park, lots of fender benders there as well. But our neighbors to the west, we're a lot luckier. Freeport police say they've responded to just one fender bender call.
