MNDOT Snowplow Safety:
Snowplows travel much slower than the posted speeds because it is most effective for clearing roads. The driver’s field of vision is severely restricted behind the truck, and the driver must rely on mirrors to see to the rear and side of the truck. Remember to:
- Be patient, and remember snowplows are working to improve road conditions for your trip.
- Stay back at least 10 car lengths between your vehicle and a plow.
- Stay alert for snowplows that turn or exit frequently and often with little warning. They also may travel over centerlines or partially in traffic to further improve road conditions.
- Slow down to a safe speed for current conditions. Snowplows typically move at slower speeds.
Don’t forget, we’re in the storm together. Be patient with the snowplows and drive according to road conditions.
