As of 5 p.m. Tuesday, Portage la Prairie Firefighters had responded to three accidents in 12 hours as road conditions continue to be unfavourable.

"Be aware of the traffic; it's very, very slippery," Fireman Don Robertson told PortageOnline. "Collisions are mostly due to the weather, and it's very icy. We recommend that you don't go out on the roads if you don't need to. If you do need to travel, drive safe."
