‘Snowplow Appreciation' occasion reminds motorists to be cautious

Snowfalls yet to come but governor, DOT say be ready

MADISON, Wis. - The first major snowfall has yet to Wisconsin, but that's not stopping Gov. Scott Walker from asking everyone to be ready for nasty driving conditions.

Monday is "Snowplow Driver Appreciation Day" and Walker is using the occasion to remind drivers about being cautious when they encounter snowplows and to limit driving during bad weather.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has a number of tips to assist drivers during winter weather.

State law requires drivers to be at least 200 feet behind a working snowplow. Caution is urged when passing a working snowplow, as it can create a cloud of snow that obscure a driver's vision.

Drivers can get the latest road conditions by calling 511 or logging on to 511wi.gov.
