Snow plowing equipment is designed to shear snow from the width of the road and distribute it to the side of the road in the form of a berm. The equipment would have to slow down to change the angle of the plow in an attempt to carry the snow past your driveway and the result will be taller berms. Additionally, a portion of the snow being pushed will fall into the center of the road creating additional road hazards.
Tree limbs that can reach vehicles when laden with snow cause the travel way to narrow, resulting in roadway hazards. Also, as the snow falls from these limbs, it creates concentrations of ice pack. By trimming these limbs, it reduces risks to the public.
If the Agency agrees that a speed zone is justified, a recommendation is presented to theBoard of Supervisors. Should the Board approve the zone, signs are posted and enforcement can begin. Where local speed limits are to be enforced by radar or other electronic devices (such as laser meters), the studies must be no more than seven years old.
