SNOW FUN ON THE ROADSIDE

Written by
It's snow season and that brings all the fun that comes along with it; sledding, skiing, snowboarding and of course the infamous snowball fights! But if you are going to enjoy the snow be sure that you travel a little further than your emergency pull off or roadside. Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) reminds us that while this may seem like an easy quick solution to get some snowy fun in it could also cause some serious problems "Highway shoulders are for emergencies only. Stopping there puts you and your loved ones at risk of a crash. It blocks first responders and snowplows en route to emergencies or to help stranded motorists. It also contributes to backups and delays." Don't worry there are tons of other free places to play that don't jeopardize your roadside safety such as local parks and free sledding attractions like Oak Hill Snow Play Area. Have fun playing in the snow and stay off the roadsides.
