New Jersey plow operators hit the streets to improve road conditions

Plow operators got to work after rush hour Monday to keep the roads clear in Somerset County during the latest winter storm.

Road crew members say their work was made easier by the fact that the heavy snow started falling after rush hour. According to plow operators, a certain amount of technique and skill is necessary to perform the job properly.

While many residents seem blasé about the latest winter blast, ambulance drivers and hospital doctors hope the latest snowfall doesn't translate into an increased number of accident victims. Authorities are urging all motorists to take it slow behind the wheel while driving.

Many officials are also want residents to stay off the roads unless they absolutely need to travel somewhere.
