To help snow removal crews accomplish their job in the most efficient manner, the Service Department offers these tips:
Delay non-essential travel until after the roads have been cleared.
When using a snow blower or plow to clear your driveway, do not put the snow in the street
To avoid shoveling your driveway entrance twice, wait until the plow truck is finished plowing the street before you shovel the end of your driveway. The plow truck operator has no choice in where to put the snow. It has to go off to the side of the road which may include your driveway entrance.
Do not park on the street during a snow event if possible, remove any obstruction from the right-of-way that would impair the salt truck.
Please be especially careful and courteous when driving around salt trucks and snow plows. Remember these tips:
Don't pass a snow plow.
Don't assume the snow plow operator can see you. Every truck has blind spots which reduce side and rear visibility.
Allow plenty of stopping distance; don't follow too closely. This also reduces the chance of loose materials hitting your vehicle.
Keep your headlights on low beam.
