With 30 years in the industry, Lee Roberts, President and CEO of Roberts Truck Towing and Recoverysays ice storms are one of the toughest working conditions.

“The worst event is the on-ice events. Gravity takes over. I don’t care if you’re a good pilot, gravity takes over and there’s literally nothing you can do about it,” Roberts said.

Roberts is asking Fayette County residents to stay off the roads as much as possible.

“Nothing is open, there’s really no reason to be out,” Roberts said.

Not only for public safety, but also for its employees.

“If you have to go out and you see my guys, try to get around because I want to keep my guys safe,” Roberts said.

Fully staffed, Roberts expects to field hundreds of calls throughout the evening, making emergency situations their top priority.

“Governor relies on us and other towing companies to do that, so if you’re on the road and playing in a parking lot, you’re probably going to park at the bottom of the list,” Roberts said.

He encourages people to consider the safety of those who have to respond to emergencies and said staying home can help keep everyone safe.

Overnight, crews like Roberts Heavy-Duty Towing and Recovery will respond to emergency calls.
