As many of you know there is a serve winter storm battering the Northeast today and has for all purposes shut everything down for 24 hours. Gov. Dan Malloy asked people to stay off the roads but not everyone heeded that request.


Despite advice from the governor, the president of the Connecticut motor transport association and state police, some truckers still hit the highways this morning.
One truck was getting a little too close to a group of plow trucks on I-95 in Old Lyme. News 8 Reporter Kent Pierce summed it up as "driving while stupid."
Cars, trucks, SUVs were all getting into trouble if they dared to go out onto the highways. State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said this morning police had responded to more than 500 requests for assistance, meaning vehicles that became stuck, disabled or which had spun-out.
State Police held over the midnight shift and called the morning shift in early to deal with the storm.
 Here is the video...
