FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - INDOT gave a behind the scenes look at what INDOT workers have to do to prepare for the winter for their Winter Weather Prep Week.
They showed how to use snow plow blade angle and placement, and a whole lot of other buttons and gadgets to maneuver when plow drivers are behind the wheel, but that’s not the only thing they have to think about on the road.
They’re also dealing with traffic and sometimes bad driving behavior of other drivers on the road.
They want drivers to know to drive safely around the snow plows.
Don’t assume the plow driver can see you.
Don’t travel too close behind a plow even though it’s always safest to drive behind the plow.
Plows go 30-35 miles per hour so INDOT wants drivers to be patient on the road.
