Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation advised drivers to watch for snow-clearing equipment on highways and roads. When major weather events affect the highway system, crews are sent out as needed, regardless of the time or day. Motorists should:
- Stay well back of all maintenance equipment, which has flashing blue warning lights
- Always remain alert when following or approaching oncoming plows
- Not attempt to pass a plow in operation from behind at any time
- Slow down when passing approaching snowplows in operation.
