Driving in winter weather is always a hot topic, but what about when you can't drive anymore?
Cars can get stuck and sometimes they are abandoned during winter storms.
FOX23’s Andrew Carter talked with Tulsa police about what people should do if they find themselves stuck.
"We didn't have a number of incidents that happened," said Bob Bledsoe with the city of Tulsa.
On Sunday, winter weather left cars in the cold, and it was noticeable Monday.
Officials said unfortunately, many of those people don't report the issue to the non-emergency police line.
"But sometimes if they'll notify us and let us know where it's at. It's nice because then (we) know where it's at and we can at least go and mark it, and that's the intent, is we try to mark a vehicle,” said Bledsoe.
Marking a vehicle is key; if a vehicle's unmarked, it means questions remain.
"We don't know if somebody may not be in it, not be passed out in it, maybe have a concussion, maybe it was a fatality and we're not aware of it,” he said.
In the past, Tulsa police weren't equipped with preferable winter storm vehicles, but in recent years, its cars have been upgraded to four-wheel drive, making life easier.
"Having those resources for us makes it a lot better for us to get around," said Bledsoe.
But if you're careful in the first place, there may be fewer cars littered around Green Country.
"Everybody needs to slow down, everybody needs to be cautious, and prepared, and always expect the unexpected," he said.
If you do get stuck, notify the police and get your car marked.
