NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- State police are urging drivers to delay their travel plans so VDOT can continue to treat and clear the roads as snow begins to fall across the area.

- Drive distraction free- put down the phone and coffee and keep both hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
- Slow speed for conditions.
