With more snow on the way, it's not only slick spots drivers need to be aware of, snow plows too.
Road crews are asking drivers to take their time and to make sure they're not following the plows too closely.
Rock Island Public Works Director Bob Hawes said drivers that find themselves behind a plow need to be far enough away so that you can see the truck's side view mirror.
He said if you can't see their mirror then they can't see you.
And that could cause an accident.
"If you're falling right behind the plows and they stop and start backing up they may never see you in the mirror when they start backing up," Bob Hawes, R. I. Public Works Director said.
Hawes said drivers can follow and pass snow plows, but should be sure to allow extra time to get around the.
