Tip of the Week:

Snowplow operators have much to monitor and control, and their ability to see behind them is limited by side mirrors. Their vision can also be hampered by the snow clouds they create while plowing.  As a pedestrian, avoid using electronic devices that can inhibit your ability to see and/or hear snowplows. Make it a habit to make eye contact with the snowplow driver; this assures they see you and they know you see them.

Safe driving means: Check road conditions at or call 511; it takes time to get the roads back to good driving conditions. Be patient and remember snowplows are working to improve road conditions for your trip.Stay back at least five car lengths behind the plow, far from the snow cloud. Snowplow operators will pull over when it is safe to do so to allow traffic build-up to pass. Stay alert for snowplows that turn or exit frequently and often with little warning. They may also travel over centerlines or partially in traffic to further improve road conditions. Slow down to a safe speed for current conditions, and give yourself plenty of travel time. Snowplows typically move at slower speeds. Avoid unnecessary travel if road conditions are too poor.
