How do I make my street safer in winter?

  • Use caution when approaching a snowplow.  Snow dust created by plows reduces visibility for both the motorist and plow driver.
  • Occasionally, a plow may need to back up.  during this operation visibility for driver is limited.  Please maintain a safe distance during this procedure.
  • Avoid piling snow at driveway entrances or intersections, as it impairs visibility.
  • Keep the area around fire hydrants clear of snow.  In case of fire, every minute counts.
  • Avoid parking within six feet of the paved edge of the road.  This will allow plow drivers to plow the entire street, and do so without throwing debris on your vehicle.
