Watch for snowplows on road
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

With winter driving season around the corner, all motorists are asked to remember the hazardous conditions they will face on the roads when snowplows are present.

Last year in Minnesota, there were 72 crashes involving vehicles that hit snowplows. This is typically caused by inattentive drivers, motorists driving too close to the plow or motorists driving too fast for conditions. Motorists should stay at least five car lengths away from plows.
