Why You Might See A Snow Plow Parked At A Local Business

Written on: January 22nd, 2014 in Alert Messages Safety Weather Related Notices

As they perform their snow removal duties, DelDOT’s crews must necessarily stop for bathroom, meal and occasional rest breaks.  During snow events, DelDOT crews frequently work long shifts into the late night or early morning hours.  Driving large, heavy vehicles under adverse road conditions requires intense concentration and can be physically and mentally exhausting.  If drivers stop their vehicles on the roadside or are parked at a local business, be assured the break they are taking is richly deserved.
