Snow Plow Drivers Refine Their Skills With Obstacle Course

On Friday, crews strapped on their plows, and fired up their engines to tackle an obstacle course.
You don't normally see snow plows on the streets when temperatures approach 90 degrees, On Friday, crews strapped on their plows, and fired up their engines to tackle an obstacle course.

The goal was to prepare for winter weather with a snow "road-eo"

Crews from all over the state came down to navigate through the circular route, trying to maneuver their way around cones and barriers.

Organizers say it requires finesse to handle a plow, and it's better to make mistakes now before the streets freeze over this winter.

“Basically, it's allowing them to learn to judge how their plow is, that way they don't hit something, no matter what it'd be. So, it's just an opportunity for them to their skills, if they hit a cone, it's not going to hurt anything,” said Andy Bugos, event manager for the American Public Works Association.

The sessions took about two hours for drivers to complete.
