NYers Deal With Cars, Driveways Buried in Snow

NEW YORK (AP/Hamodia) -

Snow-covered cars and driveways blocked by snow from plows are causing headaches for many New Yorkers as alternate side parking regulations are suspended through next Monday as an incentive to leave cars where they are.

Mayor de Blasio on Monday issued a travel advisory through Friday night for black ice. With nighttime temperatures forecast to drop to near or below freezing, melted snow can turn to black ice, causing dangerously slick driving conditions.

A reader called Hamodia Tuesday that she noticed cars driving with snow on their roofs. Aside from the danger of snow falling over the windshield and blinding the driver, it could also fall onto a car behind.

Bedford-Stuyvesant resident Peter Quamina said Monday that he spent hours over the weekend shoveling out the front of his driveway only for it to be blocked again by sanitation plows.

Lancelot Messiah, of Queens, says he spent the entire weekend at his sister’s Brooklyn apartment because his car got buried in snow. He had dug his car out on Sunday but the plows buried him back in.
