Ok I know there is at least one plow driver on this site, maybe some more. So maybe this is for a reason? Please let me know. I have noticed that this year and in past years the plow drivers are seemingly wasting my tax dollars. So they have plowed the road, they have plowed the shoulder, they have plowed the GRASS next to the road! This to me actually does makes sense, they are clearing the snow as far away as they can, for when more snow comes, so they have someplace to push it to without running into the piles from the last storm. Now... days later, I still see plows out. Saw one last week going down a highway off to the side, looked like maybe he was clearing off the shoulder. After I got in front I looked back and there was almost nothing in the plow, and the area he was going over was already clear! The plow was down for sure, and I did not notice that he was salting (it would have been hitting my windshield), which there was no need for at the time anyway. Also seen this twice this year now, on the main highway from one side of town to the other some sections of the road are close together and there is just a small shoulder on the inside and then short a cement dividing wall. I think for the most part they try to plow the snow to the outside and its fairly clean on this inside shoulder. Now I keep seeing the plows go down tight to the cement wall and pushing the snow up against it and some over it to the other side. The only thing they are doing is rotating the snow around, there is just as much snow there before and after the plow (where is it going to go?). Its already as tight as it can get against the wall before they run past it. Then they will go back down the other side and push some back over the wall the other way again, and stirring the rest of it up some more. So... Does anyone see this in other cities? Does anyone know WHY they are doing this? To me it seems like they are just milking the system for every hour they can be working, but maybe I am wrong.
