If you thought it was bad already, winter has taken a “turn” for the worse, literally.

Continued snowfalls mean snow banks are mounting, often blinding drivers at intersections. It’s a problem across Connecticut right now.

In Vernon, public works is using a front loader to either push back snow or dump it in a truck to be hauled away…that’s helping to clear lines of sight for drivers.

“We come out and assess what sight line issues we have, residents give us a call, let us know when we miss them,” Bob Kleinhans, Vernon’s Public Works Director, said.

Many businesses have snow blind spots where drivers pull out into traffic. Those businesses are responsible for clearing out their own snow banks.
