Real Road Experts

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Hopefully people are able to stay home tonight with their families, but if you are preparing to head out on the road, expect to take it slow.

We talked with some of the most experienced drivers you can find - the ones working for local cab companies.

They say the roads are a little better than they anticipated. Dina Grimson recommends sticking to main thoroughfares if you can. She said the side roads are pretty icy, and even on busy roads patches of slick spots are common.

Grimson said many people are not recognizing how long it takes to get from Point A to Point B.

"We've had some of them set it up where they got ten minutes to get to their job. And it's like, not on these roads today!" she explained.

Grimson is one of many taxi drivers working tonight. She recommends people call at least 45 minutes before they want to arrive at their destination.

And even though she's working, Grimson said she stays in the holiday spirit by listening to Christmas music.
