Snowplow Safety

During winter storms, our snowplows work to make roads passable. Observe these tips to stay safe while giving snowplow operators room to do their jobs.

  • Keep well back from snowplows
     Plow drivers can't see directly behind their trucks. Sometimes they must stop or back up. Staying a safe distance of at least 200 feet behind a snowplow will protect you from possible injury and protect your car from sanding material that plows spread on slick roadways.
  • Know where the snowplow is on multi-lane highways
     The plow could be in either lane or on the shoulder. Watch for snowplows on interstate ramps and "authorized vehicle only" turnarounds.
  • Never drive through a snow cloud or whiteout conditions
     You can't be sure if such conditions are caused by crosswinds or by a snowplow, so be patient. Pawnee County snowplow operators periodically pull over to allow traffic to pass.

Don't Crowd the Plow

Our snowplow operators in Pawnee County are extremely safety-conscious, but they need your help. Stay back and let them safely do their job of clearing the road for you. Don't take a chance. Don't crowd the plow!
