Helping snow plowers do their job

By  | 

They work to keep us safe, braving the elements while we stay at home. But plow drivers with the Nebraska Department of Transportation say other drivers can make it very dangerous for them.

Crews on Friday night say they experienced white out conditions while servicing the roads. Thankful they say not many vehicles were on the roads.

They say part of what makes their job difficult is when drivers are not courteous of them. They have had many close encounters with drivers and even had times this year when they've actually been hit.

They ask that you slow down when passing them and give them enough space.
