TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Toledo street crews are getting ready for another round
of snowfall, and have already worked 12-hour shifts for 38 of the past 48 days.
Dave Welch, commissioner of Streets, Bridges and Harbor
for the City of Toledo, says it's been an extremely busy month of January for
those snow plow drivers.
"It's been record-breaking for snow, time my guys have
been working and also for our budget," he said. "We've spent about $850,000 so
far with all of this snow and ice control."
Welch says all things considered, city plow drivers have
done an excellent job both on the clock and off to get ready for the next day
"They're out with a big plow, they have to keep their
attention on the road, they have to make sure they're following the curbs," he
said. "So it's constant attention. You do that 12 hours, 12 hours, 12 hours,
your attention starts to wane a little bit. We allow them during the 12 hour
shifts to pull over if they get a little tired or stop for a cup of coffee, so
they do that."
Welch says driver safety is a team effort, thanks to the
work of city mechanics.
"We have support of our facilities' fleet operations and
those guys are running shifts continually to keep our trucks running, because
things break down when you run 24-7."
According to Welch, the best way you can help out those
drivers is to give them plenty of space out on the roads.
