the problem of snow plows blocking driveways with snow mounds is a national one. Some interesting experiences from around the country and suggestions what you could do to minimize problem in the future
The calls and e mails have started. And, I expect my phones to be ringing non stop tomorrow. The road conditions in Greenburgh should be passable tomorrow -- Our highway, DPW & parks department employees have worked real hard trying to clear 140 miles of road of snow with 32 trucks. They worked day and all night long. But - people always get upset when their driveways are blocked with snow.
But the truth is, the plows need to push the snow out of the road and that means it has to go somewhere else. Think of it like this: if there are 5 houses on your street and a plow stopped at each one to clear the front of the driveway, it would take a lot longer to clear than if it just pushed the snow aside. Then consider all the roads plows have to get to.
The City says it's just not feasible to make sure driveways aren't blocked.
