Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton says the bulk of the recent winter storm is behind us, but you still need to watch for icy spots in Central Oregon, especially at intersections. 
 
As the temperatures hover around freezing, the road may be tricky for awhile.
 
"stop well in advance of an intsection  and make sure you can stop also watch for people - just because you have the right of way doesn't mean we don't all have a responsibility - someday you might now be able to stop and you hope that someone is watching for you... accidents happen and sometimes people drive as safe as they can but they still can't stop and they slide into one another."
 
He also says to if someone passes you and you don't see any water spray off of the vehicle, even though it looks wet, that is probably a sign that you are on ice. Sheriff Blanton was a guest on 1110 KBND's Your Town Wednesday morning.
