SNOW PLOUGHING AND TRAFFIC SIGNS

LUMENAURAUS JA LIIKENNEMERKIT

Details are given of a new type of snow plough which produces a low narrow jet of snow thus reducing the risk of damage to traffic signs and injury to road users. The importance of the location of road signs is emphasized, and the influence of their location and of the new design of snow plough on injuries during the winter months is examined. Data are presented on the causes and consequences of injuries arising from the use of snow ploughs, and measures for reducing injury severity and material damage are proposed. /TRRL/
