Why You Might See A Snow Plow Driving With Its Blade Up

Written on: January 21st, 2014 in Alert Messages Safety Weather Related Notices

Delaware Department of Transportation snow plows are assigned to plow specific roads, and they must travel quickly, but safely, from one assignment to another. With their plows down, trucks travel more slowly and might need to stop at each crossroad. Further, if a road has been recently salted, driving with the plow down might remove salt that has been applied to help melt snow and ice.
