Give Snowplows room to work

Snow Plows are on the road for your safety. When you encounter a snowplow, remember: – Plows travel slowly, usually 25-30 miles per hour. If you have to pass, keep in mind the snowplow driver may have a difficult time seeing you, especially while clearing the road ahead. – Never pass a plow on the right. Some snowplows are equipped with a wing plow-an eight foot extension off the right side of the truck. – Plows aren’t just removing snow. They may also be spreading sand or deicer on the road. Maintain a safe distance behind the snowplow to avoid being sprayed.
