Several cars and trucks across the Southern Tier finding themselves off the road. “When you have the slush that you had today people tend to drive a little faster because it’s not snow when actually it’s probably a more dangerous condition for them,” Cook said. Cook also tells 12 News that on roads that are frozen, one wrong move can be enough to cause you to loose control. Cook also tells 12 News that the best place to drive when the roads are slick is behind a DOT plow. Cook says that as far as the conditions of the road, slush like today can actually be worse than heavy snow. “A lot of times people just think they’re wet and they’ll drive too fast,” said Scott Cook, Public Information Officer for NYSDOT Region 9. “I saw a car today on the guardrail and his bumper was about fifty yards behind him,” Cook said. “Wherever you find these trucks and cars off the road it’s because they’re driving too fast,” Cook said. “They go to make one little adjustment with their tires and they start sliding next thing they know they’re in the median, worse they hit a pole,” said Cook. Cook says if you don’t have to drive on days when sleet and freezing rain make the roads icy, don’t. “You gotta learn to drive for the conditions,” Cook said. “When the roads are wet and it’s under 32 degrees you have to expect that the roads could be slippery,” said Cook. “The fewer people on the road the easier it is for us to do our jobs and if you are on the road try to keep a safe distance, try to stay out of the way and let us get the job done,” said Cook. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — While we may not have seen a lot of snow last night roads across the Southern Tier were slick this morning.

You fix that with mental toughness. As you know, Rio, when I played with you and Vidic, you would die to save the ball, you would put your head first and do everything to block a ball. ‘That mentality is needed to really compete for trophies and, if I’m really honest, I don’t see that at the moment and that’s not just now because we’ve talked about this for the last few months, we talked about it last year and there was an issue even in my time when I was playing there. ‘How do you solve that? You need to find it through defenders who want to do absolutely everything to block that ball and I think they should try to find those types of defenders.‘I’m not saying that these guys are bad. These guys are very good players but there’s another level up if you really want to compete and start winning trophies.’
