If you see a roadway that has ice on it, you are asked to call 311 or 713-837-0311. Houston Public Works will be able to dispatch a truck with chat rock to provide traction. Please do NOT call 911 to report slick roads.

You can also use the Harris County Sheriff's Office's Motorist Assistance Line to report ice on roadways: 713-225-5627.

If you have to drive, remember these tips from the Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management:

Always buckle your seatbelt.

Turn on your lights to increase your visibility to other motorists.

Brake gently to avoid skidding. If your wheels start to lock up, ease off the brake.

Don't use cruise control or overdrive on icy roads.

Be especially careful on bridges and overpasses.

Know your vehicle and how it operates. Not all cars respond the same to slippery roads.
