Snow Plow Safety Tips for Winter Travelers:
With more wintery weather predicted, the New York State Department of Transportation is offering some safety tips for sharing the roads with snow plows. Snow plows are large, heavy vehicles with many blind spots. They cannot maneuver easily or stop quickly. Plowing can create a cloud of snow around the truck that causes limited visibility and whiteout conditions for passing motorists, it also creates a ridge of snow between lanes that makes passing inadvisable. Motorists should: never follow a snowplow too closely or attempt to pass one, adjust speed for road conditions and schedule extra travel time, assume that bridge surfaces are slippery as they freeze more quickly than road surfaces, have a cell phone handy and equip your vehicle with emergency supplies, and inform a responsible person of your destination, intended route, and estimated time of arrival.
