Bismarck Police Report Around 66 Accidents in Last 36 Hours

Posted: Updated:

Snow and ice is nothing new in North Dakota, but this recent storm proves to be too much for many drivers.

The Bismarck police department reports around 66 accidents since around five o'clock Monday morning.

Mandan police say they've had around ten.

Most of those are presumed to be weather-related.

The ice has caused drivers and pedestrians to slip and slide all over the roads and sidewalks in town.

While city workers are still out sanding many roads, many businesses are also trying to make their walkways safe for customers.

Still, in residential areas, it's nearly hazardous trying to walk on the icy and untouched sidewalks.

For Scott Detling with the U.S. Postal Service, he uses cleats on his shoes, and takes it really slow when out delivering the mail.

"Walk very slowly, I guess, takes my route, like yesterday took about two and half hours longer than it probably normally would, so it adds a lot of time to your routes but it's what you've got to do, try to avoid injuries ye 39:00 says Scott Detling, mail carrier.

Detling says along with wearing cleats, he tries to walk on the edge of the grass and sidewalk to try and avoid any spills.
