Crews Need Your Help!
Winter weather presents challenges which all drivers should be prepared for. Each storm has its own character with variable conditions such as wind, extreme temperatures, timing, duration and moisture content. Traction is frequently reduced, visibility is limited, traffic moves at slower speeds and drivers need to be prepared for the unexpected.
- Be prepared for winter driving and possible delays due to the weather.
- In the event of significant snowfall, please have your cars off the street.
- Don't throw the snow from your driveway or sidewalk onto the street or alley, it's against the law.
- Don't crowd the plow, give them room to work.Please stay at least 75 feet behind the plow truck when they have their blades down and are plowing or when trucks are salting. If you can't see the driver in the mirror, the driver cannot see you. REMEMBER PLOWS BACK UP FREQUENTLY!
- Even though a street has been plowed and sanded, drive carefully, there still may be many slippery spots.
- Be patient, plowing the whole City takes time.
