Bad Idea: Lawn Sprinklers, Freezing Temps & a Road



    Under the Tucson Sun
    Sand trucks and North Richland Hills police were called out to Davis Blvd. at Precinct Line Rd. to deal with the traffic tie-ups caused by ice on the road.

    Sprinklers that triggered overnight when the temperatures dipped below freezing caused trouble for North Texas drivers Thursday morning.

    Four major trouble spots were reported during morning rush hour.

    • Davis Blvd. at Precint Line Rd. in North Richland Hills
    • Westmoreland Rd. and Commerce St. in Downtown Dallas
    • Preston Rd. at Westgrove Dr. in Dallas 
    • Eldorado Pkwy. along the 75 Central service road in McKinney

    Temperatures could dip below freezing again next week causing the same issues on Tuesday morning.
