Crews Clear Roads to Keep Intersections Safe


Orchard Park, NY - Plow crews around Western New York are on-call and ready to clear the roads this weekend. But the snow piles at intersections are already a big safety issue for drivers.

"It's really bad. Really, really bad," says Darla Anderson.

People are just sick and tired of all the snow. Even those of us who don't mind winter think we've had enough. And not being able to see around snow piles as you turn out of your driveway or a parking lot isn't just annoying, it's dangerous.

"It's ridiculous. Traffic's crazy. You can't see. There's accidents almost everywhere. Like, we thought they would have come in with plows by now to try to get rid of it," says Anderson.

We asked our twitter followers to let us know where it is especially bad, and they responded with several locations. The on-ramps on Delaware to the 198 were troublesome. But really, it's tough everywhere.
