FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions

What are those plows doing?

  • If you see a snow plow driving away with its blade up, it is most likely leaving for repairs or refueling. It will return as soon as possible!
  • In order to maintain even wear on cutting edges, plow operators may travel against the flow of traffic. They will refrain from this practice on major thoroughfares if possible.
  • Plow Operators may also travel against the flow of traffic in order to move snow to one side. If this is necessary, they will allow traffic to pass them, either by stopping until traffic has passed, or by moving the plow out of the traffic lane until traffic is passed.
