Some Choose Cabs During Snow Storm

HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- During snow storms, there aren't a lot of people driving on the roads.

But when people need a little extra help getting to an appointment at the hospital or even running an errand, calling a cab is one alternative.

"A lot of people with four wheel drive think they can just go go go in the snow, and it's, that's not how it rolls," said Terri Stickley, who called a cab to get a ride home from work.

For this drive, she usually asks a friend for a ride.

"You do not know how many times me and my friend come home from work, and have to worry about other drivers. It's unbelievable," said Stickley.

Despite the weather, snow days can be good days for Vic Morris, who has been a cab driver for 21 years.

"Usually a pretty good money day, so I like snow days," said Morris.

Some had to make a routine trip and they ventured out in this weather.

"I just called a cab because I need to go to the laundromat to wash my clothes," said Eduardo Suarez.

It wasn't all smooth sailing as there were a few turns and more risky maneuvers.

"I've never gotten stuck in the snow in 21 years of driving a cab except once. And they had to send one of those big tow trucks to get us both out," said Morris.

"They're the ones that's out in the snow. Yeah they do, they do good," said Stickley.

With the chance for more ice overnight, Stickley has some advice.

"You have to look out for every other driver you have to be vigilant," said Stickley.

Cab drivers ask people to come to the edge of the parking lot so they don't get stuck.

As far as driving goes Monday night, the roads may turn icy and then not even cab drivers may be out on the roads.
