When passing snowplows, it’s
not a race – give some space
The Government of Saskatchewan wants to remind everyone this winter
season that when passing snowplows, it’s not a race. Give some space.
Highway snowplow operators often work early mornings and late into
the night, as long as it’s safe for them to be on the road. There are many
passionate and dedicated people inside our snowplows and they do it to
keep us safe.
“It’s important to remember these aren’t just highway workers in our
plows, they’re someone’s family,” Highways Minister Joe Hargrave said.
“They are the unsung heroes of highway safety, and they all deserve our
thanks. So let’s make sure we do our part and give them the space they need
to work and ensure they go home safely.”

aren’t just highway workers in our
plows, they’re someone’s family”

Saskatchewan’s snowplows have blue and amber flashing lights. When
these lights are on, it means the snowplow is performing winter duties and
you should be careful. Winter duties include plowing, sanding, salting and
inspecting roads. Some road bridge repairs also occur during the winter.
Here are some rules to keep in mind when passing slowplows on
• Treat snowplows like you would any emergency vehicle
• If they are pulled over on the side of the road and have their lights
flashing, slow to 60 km/hr
• If the plow is driving and has its lights flashing, approach with caution
and pass when safe to do so
• If the plow is clearing snow and visibility is low, be patient. Snowplows
pull over every 10 to 15 kms to allow you to pass safely
Contacting an underground utility line can be costly and dangerous. Plan ahead and stay safe.
