A video posted by the Colorado Department of Transportation proves that passing a snowplow truck is still never a good idea.
The 30-second video posted by CDOT on their Facebook page shows a pickup tailgating one snowplow truck, before passing another on the right. The snowplow truck swerves as the pickup inches past it.
“This could have ended very badly. Today, this driver put himself and our plow drivers at risk and obviously never heard our plea to ‘bow to the plow,’” CDOT posted on its Facebook page.
“Law enforcement would have likely cited him for numerous offenses. Please be patient as we work to clear the roads from this latest storm.”
As of Friday, the video has garnered 1.4 million views on CDOT’s Facebook page. We’ve provided the YouTube version below.
