The best advice for driving on snow and ice is this: don't. If you have to be out, however, you need to check with the Alabama Department of Transportation for the latest information on road closings and conditions.
On Saturday morning, there were multiple weather-related crashes in Jefferson, St. Clair, Talladega, Calhoun, and Cleburne counties. Drivers in Tuscaloosa are being advised to stay off the roads. Drivers are also advised to stay off I-20 East or West in the affected areas.
Most roads in the Birmingham area are icy and dangerous to travel at this time.
