Commuters urged to take it slow or use mass transit after winter's last gasp

(03/19/04) SOUNDVIEW - Another snowstorm has dumped between two and five inches of the white stuff across the Bronx, just hours before the first day of spring. It is the second round of snow this week.

Officials urge drivers to take it slow on the roads and suggest using mass transit, which is on or close to schedule.

The wet snow has made the roads very slippery. Sanitation crews tell News 12 The Bronx there were about 350 salt spreaders out in full force Friday trying to clear the major Bronx roads as quickly as possible.
