Whether you’re driving out of a restaurant shopping center or even a gas station, the snow can block views and create a hazard for anyone on the road.
“You crawl and make sure you’re going out safe,” one driver said about how to pull out into traffic.
Each town in New York state must make their own laws regarding how tall piles of snow on the sides of the roads can be.
