The day after Christmas morning commutes are flowing smoothly with just one traffic incident reported throughout the greater Baltimore metro area.
A disabled car was affecting traffic on the Interstate 695 outer loop just before the Jones Falls Expressway in Baltimore County but it was cleared up by 8:45 a.m., the Maryland Department of Transportation reported.
The Maryland State Police declared precautionary "snow emergencies" for Allegany and Garrett counties at 8:15 a.m.
Once a snow emergency is declared, state law requires that drivers take certain precautions including no parking on roads and streets designated as snow emergency routes and the required use of chains or snow tires, which includes all-weather tires, the Maryland State Highway Administration website said.
All requirements are in effect until the state police lift the emergency designation in both counties.
The Maryland Transit Administration reported no public transit delays on Wednesday.
