How About Some Death With Your Plowed Roads?
ARLINGTON, VA – There are plenty of good reasons not to drive your car in wintry conditions, but this snow plow driver illustrates one of the best on why you should stay home when things get icy out there.
An Arlington, Virginia snow plow driver was captured on video driving uphill on the wrong side of the road in some of the iciest winter conditions the region has seen. The motorist who captured the video nearly drove right into the plow and decided to record the rogue snowplow as it went about its rounds.
“This is completely unacceptable behavior for snow plowing and it was in violation of Arlington County’s plow driver practices and training,” said Dave Hundelt, Chief Operating Engineer of the Water/Sewer/Streets Bureau at the Arlington County Department of Environmental Services. As soon as the County learned of the unacceptable behavior, we identified the driver and removed him from duty. We will be taking appropriate action with this employee. Safety is a priority for the County, and we encourage any driver issues or concerns to be reported to the police,” Hundelt stated.
