Why You Might See A Snow Plow Driving Fast

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

Snow removal operations must proceed as quickly and safely as possible in order to plow as many miles of road as possible in a limited amount of time.  The Delaware Department of Transportation is responsible for more than 12,000 lane- miles of roads, or 89 percent of the roads in Delaware. Drivers are trained to operate their equipment at safe speeds that will result in an effective snow removal effort over a large area.

If you believe that a vehicle is being driven in a reckless or unsafe manner, please contact DelDOT’s Office of Public Relations at (302) 760-2080 with detailed information about the specific situation.
