Why does the snow plow leave snow that blocks my driveway?

Plow operators do not intentionally block driveways. It is not practical for plow operators to lift their plows at every driveway as it would leave large piles of snow in the roadway at every driveway. Tip: When possible, clear your driveway after the plow has gone by. When clearing your driveway, try to pile the snow on the right side, (standing in your driveway and looking at the street). This can help reduce the amount of snow that is pushed into your driveway when a plow passes.
