Tow truck driver praises city, cautions drivers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After a second winter storm, some metro side streets are still covered in snow. Some areas like 32nd and Karnes have tree limbs in the roadway making it difficult for motorists to get around, but city crews continue to make progress.

“The city did a really good job this time keeping the roads cleared up,” said DJ, tow truck driver with Auto Tow and Recovery. “MoDOT did a really good job.”

DJ said it helped the motorists stayed off the road so city crews could clear them. Most of the calls DJ has taken were of people stuck in their driveways. He said he’s seen a few fender benders but “nothing too awful.”

DJ added that if people need to be out to drive slow, otherwise just stay home.

Kansas City’s state of emergency ends Wednesday at 11:59 p.m.
