Last updated 5 years ago

Snow plows and salt trucks make roads safe after heavy snowfall. However, drivers who steer too close to snow plows put themselves in serious danger. This video from the Illinois Department of Transportation offers several tips on how to stay safe around snow plows.

Since snow plow drivers have such large blind spots, you should always take extra care when passing. According to this video, about 30% of snow plow-related accidents in Illinois are caused by drivers who follow too close.
