Watch Out For Snow Plows!

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Our first real snowfall of the season drew the snow plows out of storage.

Snow plow drivers ask citizens to not park on the main arterial roads such as Blue Lakes or Washington Street.

Twin Falls city officials say the plows need to maintain a consistent speed and they eject snow out the side.

This could cause damage to cars or other objects on the side of the road.

Pedestrians are being asked to yield to snow plows because the force of the snow could cause injury.

Palmer says, "our snowplow drivers are very concerned about the citizens, are cognizant of the dangers, they'll yield to citizens, but at the same rate, if they can help us out, move their vehicles off the road if possible, that helps us out quite a bit and helps us maintain road safety during the winter."

He adds that citizens may have seen sand and salt on the roadway during this first snowfall of the season, but they only melt the ice and snow if temperatures reach above 25 degrees.
