PARAMUS, N.J., (CBSNewYork) – The roads may be clear for now, but driving is still tricky because of the enormous mountains of snow.

As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, drivers in Paramus were cautiously inching out into busy Route 4 on Sunday, their views blocked by the roadside hills.

“You’ve got to be really careful because the mounds are so high, especially coming out of a side street,” Joe, of New Milford, N.J., said.

“Yeah, it’s an accident waiting to happen.”

Natasha, of Hackensack, said it’s getting dangerous trying to merge with the cars whipping by at highway speeds.

“That’s also hard for me even getting on to Route 4 by where I live because I can barely see what’s around the corners,” she said.

Motorists in Bergen County are hoping the snow piles are just a temporary nuisance.

“It’s going to warm up, it’s going to melt, and we’re going to have like 60-degree weather next week,” one optimistic man told Smith.

But others said they think they’ll have to get used to the snow hills.

“Hopefully someone will come and remove it because it’s not going to melt anytime soon,” Natasha said.
