Share the Road with Snowplows

Don’t go out during a snowstorm if you can avoid it. If you do, buckle up – always!

If you must travel, here are some tips to share the road with snow plows:

  • Give snowplows room to work; don’t tailgate or try to pass

  • A “strike team” may include several plow trucks, some with TowPlows and wing plows, and block all lanes on a major highway.  

  • Stay at least 4 car lengths back from snowplows and equipment 

  • Plowed snow can create a cloud that can blind drivers following too close 

  • Spreaders on trucks can throw salt, sand or cinders that can damage close-following vehicles - Stay Back!  

  • Salt brine trucks have a sign on the back warning motorist to “Liquid Salt, Stay Back.” That is for your safety as well as the drivers. They can’t see you and the brine sprays across three traffic lanes whether you are driving in them or not.  

  • Plow truck operators have to focus on snow removal and cannot always watch out for the drivers surrounding them, which means they may not see you if you try to pass or even collide with MoDOT equipment

  • Drive even more slowly in construction zones, even though they are inactive in winter weather

Remember a snowplow operator’s field of vision is restricted. You may see them, but they may not see you.


Driving Tips to Stay Safe in Winter Weather

  • Signs of ice forming on the road - you will see little to no moisture coming from the tires of vehicles around you or you will not hear moisture coming from your tires even if the road looks wet.
  • One of the best rules for driving in snow is to take it slow: everything should be done gradually. Remember stopping distance may increase 4 to 10 times on ice/snow covered roads.

  • Wet Roads - Reduce speed 1/4 the posted speed limit (Speed limit 55 mph = Reduce to 40-45 mph)
  • Snow Covered Roads - Reduce speed 1/2 the posted speed limit (Speed limit 55 mph = Reduce to 25-30 mph
  • Ice Covered Roads - Reduce speed 2/3 the posted speed limit (Speed limit 55 mph = Reduce to 20-25 mph)
  • Drive with your lights on.

  • Keep at least 1/2 tank of fuel in the vehicle
  • Travel during daylight hours if possible
  • 4-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles do not provide any additional stability on icy surfaces.

  • Sometimes it's best to find a safe spot and wait until the roads are clear and treated or the temperature rises

Winterize Your Car and Get Ready for the Hazards of Winter:

  • Good battery
  • Do a thorough pretrip inspection of your vehicle
  • Check your tires and brakes

  • Windshield wipers

  • Windshield wiper fluid

  • Roadside flares or fluorescent markers

Equip Your Vehicle With:

  • A flashlight with extra batteries

  • A first-aid kit & necessary medications

  • Blankets and/or sleeping bags

  • Extra warm clothing and rain gear

  • A small sack of sand to use for traction under your wheels

  • Small shovel
  • Jumper/Booster cables

  • Small tools - pliers, wrench, screwdriver

  • Nonperishable foods

  • Bottled water
