Keep kids away from snow piles by the road

The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) reminds residents that children should not play in or on the snow piled along roads, as snowplow drivers may not be able to see them.

“Occasionally children build snow forts in the piles of snow at the side of roads or in cul de sacs or play on or behind them,” explained RCOC Highway Maintenance Director Darryl Heid. “There’s a great risk that our snowplow drivers won’t be able to see those children. That’s a dangerous situation.”

Heid noted its best to keep children completely away from the snow piles at the sides of roads and in cul de sacs. “This is a case where it’s best just to keep children away from anywhere a snowplow might travel,” he said.
