Snow a Problem
Snow on the roads led to more than 80 accidents yesterday in the Treasure Valley, the Idaho Transportation Department says November to February presents the greatest safety challenges in motorists. Theyre setting up a 511 telephone number that will give travellers up to the minute road conditions that include closures, delays and weather conditions.
