Sledding Safety

Updated: Thursday, February 13 2014, 11:38 PM EST

The City of Asheville is working hard to clean up after the big storm. But while you're out enjoying the snow, keep those plow trucks in mind. Officials are advising people to avoid sledding in the road. It looks fun, but it's also very dangerous. It's not a good idea when snow plows are trying to clear the snow.

The snow covered streets may look like a good place to play, but plow drivers have a hard time seeing anyone who is low to the ground. There are plenty of safe parks and places to play in the city that are not the middle of the road.

Mission Hospital says none of the sledding injuries its doctors have seen were related to plows or plow equipment. Public works says they are working to clear city sidewalks as quickly as possible, which should make it easier to people to get around.
