Icy roads and sidewalks are making Tuesday's commute extremely dangerous. Lots of motorists are braving the slippery conditions.

Milton Brown scrapes the thick ice from the sidewalk and stairs of his friends home. He got up at 5:30 a.m., picked up his large metal shovel, and headed out the door.

"I would have rather had that snow that we had last year than this this is dangerous. I would advise anybody not to come out in this not until it melts," Brown says.

Due to the messy mix of ice and snow, AAA Mid-Atlantic advises motorists to drive at reduced speeds.

Meanwhile, crews will continue to treat the roadways throughout the day. Motorists may run into slush on major arteries as a result of the melting ice.
