- Tonight on Newswatch 12:

The weather also has a major effect on the wear and tear of roads when heavy vehicles travel on them. We talk to the Oneida County highway commissioner about weight restrictions that are in effect on county roads earlier than usual.

Tonight we talk with a local domestic violence coordinator about how common smartphone stalking is, and we'll give you tips for decreasing your chance of being a stalking victim.

We'll bring you the details on these stories and more tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.
