LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Winter Weather Advisory for Jefferson County was lifted several hours early on Wednesday and officials with Jefferson County Public Schools decided to open their doors and operate on a normal schedule, but that doesn't mean road conditions throughout Metro Louisville are ideal.

The Louisville Metro Police Department has been deluged with reports of traffic accidents since Tuesday night. Drivers involved in minor, non-injury accidents are asked to use state accident forms rather than calling LMPD. State accident forms will remain in effect for all minor accidents that do not involve injuries until further notice.

People involved in such accidents should exchange names, contact and insurance information. They should then go to LMPD Headquarters at 633 W. Jefferson Street to pick up a state accident form. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. State accident forms can also be accessed at www.louisvilleky.gov/MetroPolice. Click on the link ‘Report an Accident,' and follow the directions on that page.
