AAA expects to see a higher volume of calls from members this weekend, with snow and cold temperatures moving into Western New York.

7 Eyewitness News rode along with a AAA crew Friday night. Officials say they help motorists from issues ranging from lockouts and batteries, to disabled vehicles and accidents.

Officials with Erie County and the City of Buffalo are urging people to stay off the roads unless it's an emergency.

Use extra caution, give yourself extra time to get to your destination and remember to maintain a safe distance between the vehicle in front of you.
