It’s been awhile since we’ve seen this kind of snow.  I hope it’s awhile before we see it again.  There’s a travel ban until 6 this morning, but that doesn’t mean travelling will be any easier then either.  Cornell’s Local Roads Program has some tips on sharing the road with snowplows. 
David Orr, Director of the program says people have a tendency to lose patience with snow plows while on the road.  There’s lots of distractions for the driver, as he tries to navigate the road with limited visibility while keeping an eye on traffic and the plow.  Orr has three basic tips to remember:

Don’t tailgate, don’t pass, and give the plow room to operate.

While travel is discouraged, there are instances when you have no choice.  Here are more driving tips for navigating Central Winter Weather.
