In an effort to improve the awareness of the dangers to children playing too close to the roadways during snow removal operations, the Alpena County Road Commission and several other northern area road commissions have had a video prepared entitled "Play it Safe". The video is directed at elementary school age children and stresses the importance of safety as it relates to road commission snow removal activities. The video is made available to all the schools in our area. The presentation includes a visit by one of our truck drivers to answer questions and to allow the students an opportunity to see up close the size of the truck, the plow, vision obstructions and potential hazards.
