DELAFIELD- TODAY'S TMJ4's Charles Benson reports the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office said they had 48 accidents since 3 p.m. Thursday. 60 cars were in ditches since 3 p.m.

Benson drove along  I-94 near Highway 83 and spotted several accidents and cars in ditches Thursday afternoon.

Benson says traffic was traveling about 10 to 15 miles per hour less than the normal speed limit when he was out there and there were plenty of snowplows on the highways and side roads.

He says the snow was coming down pretty good in western Waukesha and there were a lot of people on the roads.
