Twenty-one of the accidents were reported in Washoe County and two took place in Douglas County. The U.S. 395 corridor between Cold Springs and Pleasant Valley was where the largest percentage of the calls for service were handled. Speed too fast for the conditions was the primary cause in all of the accidents.
As a precaution, motorists should always stay completely focused on their driving, and even more so when roadway surfaces are wet, icy or snow covered. Motorists should reduce the speed of their vehicles and adjust their driving habits as necessary. Allowing more time for one’s commute will help to minimize the stress while driving in such conditions which will hopefully allow those to reach their destination safely.
