GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-- While there were reports of slide-offs all morning, a big issue for drivers around Kent County during Tuesday's snow were hills.
Drivers used their emergency flashers to warn vehicles behind them that trying to get up the hill on Leonard and Perkins on the city's northeast side wasn't going too well.
SUVs and a couple of semi trucks slowly reversed down the hill and created a backup for drivers.
"It's horrible," one woman explained. "It's like this every single year. There are cars stuck on the hill all the time.”
One women ditched her car just before making it to work and figured walking the rest of the way would be quicker than trying to get up the hill.
"I've been working here for seven years and this is the first time I've seen this.”
A semi truck driver delivering pallets could not make it up the hill. He waited for coworkers to bring sand to use as traction.
“I shouldn’t even be out here," he said.
