Bernards Township police reported shortly after noon on Tuesday that there were road crews out, but many minor accidents on snow and slush-slicked roads, said Lt. Mike Voorhees.

Police Capt. Ed Byrnes also reported that vehicles were getting stuck on steep Allen Road in The Hills development, and a fender bender had occurred on Martinsville Road by the Marriott as of about noon.

"Roads are hazardous," Byrnes said, but "We assume once the salt and plows get [out]. better coverage the roads will improve.

However, he added that police encourage people to minimize their driving, drive slowly and exercise caution. 

"Usually we experience more minor accidents and stuck vehicles in the first snow storms of the season," Byrnes added.
