Stay safe, slow down, and never pass a snow plow

Let the plows lead the way

Each year a number of major winter collisions are caused by people driving too fast and dangerously trying to pass a snow plow.

City crews works tirelessly to clear snow and ice from roads and sidewalks. Please do your part by sharing the road and being cautious around snow plows.

Snow plow safety tips

  • Be patient and keep a safe distance behind working snow plows.
  • Slow down, and never pass or drive beside a snow plow.
  • When approaching a snow plow from the opposite direction, stay right, allowing enough space for the plow to operate safely.
