Atlas Paving - snow hints
driveway, plow, Shovel
- Shovel your driveway AFTER a plow has come through, if possible. If you must shovel before a plow has come, always shovel to the right, facing the street. This way, less snow will be pushed back into your driveway by plows.
- When snow is forecasted, don't park on your street or at the end of cul-de-sacs. If possible, park in your driveway to give plows room to work. If you must park in the street, park as close to the curb as possible.
- If you're out on the highway, keep a safe distance (two car lengths for every 10 MPH you're traveling) between you and the snow plow to protect your car from chemicals and abrasives.
- If you're in front of a plow, don't break suddenly. A heavy plow cannot stop quickly.
