Safe driving: Doing your part when it gets icy

-A A +A
By The Staff

During the winter months, the County would like to remind residents of some important safety considerations for motorists to take, in order to make navigating Los Alamos streets and sidewalks as safe as possible.

It is the responsibility of every motorist to have their vehicle properly equipped and serviced to handle such conditions, and to drive their vehicle carefully and courteously during adverse conditions. During storms, drivers are asked to be alert and courteous to County crews, who will be doing their best to keep the streets open and safe for traveling. Please assist them in this difficult task by yielding to their efforts, and keeping a safe distance away to avoid having vehicles struck by flying sand and salt.

Crews will generally plow snow toward the sunny sides of the street to assist in the melting operations. Residents should park in their driveways or on the shady side of the street to allow for the snow to be placed on the sunny side. In addition, it makes plowing much easier and cleaner if County crews don’t have to plow around cars. This will also assist residents in getting their vehicles shoveled out, since they won’t have to contend with snow that crews have deposited around vehicles while plowing.
