County Adds New Visibility Feature to Salt/Plow Trucks
03/13/2019- While we’ve hopefully seen the last of the snowplows for the season, drivers in Marinette County will now have an easier time seeing these vehicles on the roads. Marinette County Highway Commissioner Eric Burmeister reports after three county salt and plow trucks were involved in accidents this season, he’s looking to upgrade their visibility to reduce repeat incidents in the future. That’s why he’s now equipping the trucks’ plow wings with flashing green lights to alert motorists of the truck’s presence, even in conditions of poor visibility. Burmeister says a similar tactic is already being used in the neighboring state of Michigan.
