GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Some West Michigan drivers continued to miscalcuate the effects of snow on pavement as a rash of slide-offs and crashes broke out when snow moved into the area again.

In the most serious situation, westbound I-94 was closed around 11:30 a.m. due to the rollover of a semi.

There wasn’t a specific highway or city that was worse than others: slide-offs were reported on I-196 in Grandville and in Holland, US-131 in Wayland, M-21 in Grand Rapids Township, and more.

    Thats because people drive to fast- Selfish self centered people who feel that their destination is far more important than others who are on the road- Not thinking about the impact an accident they may cause would have on the lives of the potential victims and the families-
    People, Be considerate and SLOW YOUR ROLL!!! It could mean all the difference in the world- No destination is that important if it means someones life!

    seriously??? how many snowfalls do we have to have before people get it?? I believe they ARE slowing down as recommended. Instead of going 75 – 80, they've slowed down to 65 – 70. additionally think about the next time you're driving in the snow; do you drive with your headlights on? I don't use mine to help me see, but so that others can see me.
