Snow Plow and Emergency Vehicle Safety

Be aware of snow plows, safety vehicles, and other equipment during snow events. Follow these tips to ensure your safety and the safety of others:

  1. Do not follow too close behind snow removal vehicles and equipment. Equipment may be vehicles other than trucks. Stay back a minimum of 200 feet.
  2. Do not attempt to pass a plow. Plows cannot travel as fast as other vehicles during heavy snow events and active plowing operations
  3. Be watchful for abrupt maneuvers including stopping, backing, and turning. Snow plows are in service to maintain road conditions for safe travel.
  4. Remember to slow down and move over for highway maintenance vehicles and equipment, including tow truck operators. This law is not only for police, fire, EMS, or other emergency vehicles.
  5. Do not put snow into the street when plowing or shoveling your driveway. Putting snow into the street is against the law.
