NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- So far there are no major problems on the roadways but that was not the case this morning as snow fell during the morning commute and with more winter weather coming, the roads could be even worse tomorrow morning.
Truckers News 8 talked to are just trying to get their big rigs through Connecticut before the snow makes the roads a slippery mess.
"I'm going back to New Jersey and then I'm going to be picking up a load to come back up to Massachusetts but I hear the weather is going to get real bad," said Reuben Rodriguez Jr.
Under pressure to deliver the goods, many truckers keep going despite the snow.
"Just take your time and slow down pretty much. Not like all these older trucker drivers, they fly," said Chris Sweet.
This morning along Interstate 85 in Tolland three trucks crashed including two FedEx tandem trucks that overturned and spurred other chain reaction crashes. In all, ten cars were banged up in the crash.
Experts advise people to give big rigs more than their fair share of space on snowy roads.
"Give them room. Certainly don't cut in front of them and certainly don't pass them if the road conditions are adverse. If you lose control then they lose control, we are looking at a catastrophe occurring," said Lt. J Paul Vance.
The goal is to get there on time but also in one piece so sometimes even the big rigs bow to snow.
"I might turn around and shut down be like nah, I don't think it's a good idea. Sometimes your life is worth more than people think," said Rodriguez.
"If it gets really bad, yeah, pull off," said Sweet.
