GREENBURGH, N.Y. Greenburgh and Elmsford roads did not need plowing after Monday night's snow, but some needed salting, said the police department.
While there were no ice-related accidents reported Tuesday, Greenburgh police patrol cars checked for ice on their morning routes. The town's highway department de-iced some of the slippery areas to protect residents from potential accidents.
"They put sand and salt down in trouble spots," said Greenburgh Police Lieutenant Brian Ryan, commanding officer of the special investigations unit. "You want to watch out while driving. We caution the public to drive accordingly, and that helps. Many of these accidents have an element of speed as the underlying force. So don't speed."
The iciest areas in town are usually Ardsley Road, Payne Street, Secor Road, Grasslands Road, Route 9A near Hunter Lane, and several of the Bronx River Parkway exits.
"Also, backstreets sometimes get iced up more," Ryan said. "Secondary roads tend to be more as the town tends to hit the primary roads first and then go back to the secondary roads. So those are the roads where you want to use more caution."
If residents experience patches of ice, they are encouraged to notify police.
