A day with the snowplow drivers

January 5, 2013
By DAVE WERNER , Adirondack Daily Enterprise

As the writer of these weekly articles on traffic law and safety, sometimes I get to do interesting things. On Dec. 27, the day the Malone area received 13 inches of new snow (the most since a 14-inch storm in April, 2010), I spent most of the day riding with our local snowplow drivers not the pickup trucks plowing driveways and parking lots, but with the state Department of Transportation plowing state highways and with the Town of Malone plowing town roads. The purpose of this was to get a prospective on just how difficult a highway snowplow driver's job really is, how motorists add to the difficulty of the job, and to give readers a brief insight to what plowing highways entails.
