Snow plows are massive tools with drivers that are out on the road to make it safer for you. These machines are so massive that they absolutely need all the room they can possibly be afforded. That’s why you absolutely have to get the hell out of the way when you see them coming!
As you can see in the above video, someone tried to cut off a snow plow, and it wound up moving to dodge the car. That sent the plow and the driver over the edge of this mountainous Utah road, falling 300 feet!
On Thursday, January 12, 2017, veteran plow driver Terry Jacobson was run off the road by a semi truck while plowing US Route 6 in Spanish Fork Canyon.
The semi truck driver attempted to pass the plow on the right and clipped his plow. The incident serves as a reminder of the need to give plows plenty of room so they can clear the roads safely.
When driving near plows, give them at least 200 feet of space, never try and pass them, and don’t cut in front of them. Remember, they’re there to make the roads safer for you.
