It may be spring but Sunday drivers were faced with what's become an all too familiar sight this winter; snow covered roads and icy conditions that are dangerous for drivers.

“I've seen a lot of people, slid off the road which is kind of crazy. I grew up here. I've been here since '72. You know when it gets wet, slow down,” Bradley Trautman said.

"I'm scared, because I've been in a similar situation, so I don't drive much if it's this kind of weather. I let him drive,” Ruth Manalo said.

The roads were slick and icy most of the day and many busy intersections were reduced to four way stops because of snow covered traffic lights. Police say there were dozens of accidents throughout the city. The majority of them happened early in the morning when conditions were at their worst.

Abandoned cars still line the roadways. Most of them appear to have slid off the road. Drivers have 48 hours to get them towed themselves, before the Kansas Highway Patrol tows them away.
