A whole new round of snowfall is upon us once again and cant make things quite messy for drivers.

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 12 snowplow drivers say they are ready. 

ODOT reports that crews began pretreating roadways Saturday night into Sunday morning to help reduce the chances of ice bonding to the pavement. 

ODOT states that there are 80 crews in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties working around the clock plowing, salting and treating roads as necessary until the downpour of snow ceases.

With the heaviest snowfall beginning Sunday afternoon and continuing all night, drivers need to plan ahead for the Monday morning commute which will most likely be affected. 

ODOT says that if your car will be outside overnight to make sure you brush it off before hitting the road.  Snow blowing off of cars can create visibility issues for other drivers. 

See and be seen by clearing all windows, headlights, taillights and mirrors.
