Clear Roads II: Defensive Driving for Snowplow Operators

This new Clear Roads project will maintain its focus on advancing winter highway operations nationally through practical, practice-ready research related to materials, equipment and methods. The goal of this project is to examine key causes of collisions involving snowplows and other vehicles, identify defensive driving strategies that snowplow operators can use to reduce the likelihood of being struck by other drivers, and develop training modules on safe driving and defensive driving for snowplow operators.
