New Yorkers are no strangers to commuting in terrible weather. Unfortunately, every year drivers seem to be caught off guard by freezing rain, sleet, slush and snow. With the added winter challenges, drivers must not only be aware of strange weather patterns, but the city’s efforts to keep roads safe – namely, snowplows.
During the winter months, sharing the road with snowplows is a common occurrence. Whether they are clearing snow that has already fallen or spreading salt or chemicals in anticipation of a coming storm, these huge vehicles can often be seen driving along city streets, county roads and highways. New York state officials remind drivers “Don’t crowd the plow” and offer numerous other winter safety tips, including:
Vehicle accidents can have devastating consequences. Injuries can range from scrapes and bruises to head trauma and spinal cord damage. Severe collisions can result in fatalities for vehicle occupants. It is wise to remain safe on snowy roads, postponing a commute until the snowplows have cleared the path.
