M-DOT vehicles on the roads across Michigan

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Governor Rick Snyder is urging everyone to stay safe and warm as heavy snow and dangerously low wind chills blanket Michigan.

He says if people must drive, they should drive slowly and use extra caution.

Right now, a snow emergency is in effect for Battle Creek and Marshall, which means no parking in the streets, to make way for the plows.

Police have marked cars that are still parked on the streets, and say they will be towing them soon at the owners expense.

M-DOT is out in full force overnight, clearing the roads as fast as they can.

Spokesman Nick Schirripa says that 90 plows are hitting the roads across Michigan and all drivers are working a 12-hour shift.
