Deldot shows that it is important to stay out of the way as much as possible during large storms and delay the unit’s release state. It is to develop the potential of rain, which could lead to dangerous driving conditions.
Bear in mind the direction of a winter storm that follows:
Snowdrift deldot drivers have limited visibility, so do not assume a vehicle is on the side. Drivers should keep a safe distance behind the snow cleaner. Be alert for snowplows that can slow down, stop or reverse.
Remember that bridges, overpasses and ramps tend to freeze before you. Slowly, before driving on roads that were raised and to maintain a constant speed without brakes to help keep the vehicle under control.
