THE BRONX - Drivers are preparing for what is expected to be a messy morning commute Wednesday, but some said slow driving had already begun.

Tuesday's evening commute was difficult for many, with heavy delays on the Cross Bronx Expressway. Drivers said they were preparing for what's likely to be an even worse traffic backup tomorrow.

Some Bronx residents said that, if possible, they planned to stay home, but for those who are traveling, officials said to allow plenty of extra time.
