The Indiana Department of Transportation is preparing for the winter season with classes for training their snowplow drivers. These classes will be hosted across the districts to prepare snowplow drivers for conditions that they might have to face this winter. The training at these schools will include three days of practice with the snowplows, best techniques, and virtual learning. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the training will attempt social distancing while training the drivers, with units coming in through each subdistrict to keep the drivers separated. INDOT has recently added 14 trucks to the Indianapolis district, bringing the force up to 100 vehicles.
As the days become shorter, the weather will get colder, eventually leading to snow and ice on the roads in early morning and late night. When the roads are in these conditions, drivers that handle these conditions with caution risk putting the lives of every other driver at risk.
