you would think by now people would know that road is pretty nasty this time of year once the snow starts to fly.
hope that everyone was alright!!

Yes it seems alot of roads in the area were pretty nasty...have heard alot of accidents around this morning...seems to me the plow trucks weren't out and prepared for this early snow. I myself slid in to the ditch on North Hollow Road in Coudersport. I heard right after I came that way that there was an accident on that road, one on Route 44 towards Shinglehouse and this one. It really stinks when people have to go out on these roads to go to work and they aren't plowed. Just my two cents.

It would help if the township would have salted the road earlier than they did. I was coming down the town side of the hill at 7:35 this morning and they were just coming up. They know that's a heavily traveled road in the mornings with people going to work and yes, some of them travel too fast for conditions!

People were travelling way to fast on Dutch Hill this morning. I witnessed the accident and had to wait...people are flying around that corner. When it snows they need to remember that anything can be around the corner. The trucks do need to get out a little earliers, I saw three trucks after the accident...which is great that there were that many...but it would have been nice if they were out a little earlier.

its not that bad that penndot needs to be out. its careless people and using their head driving

The trucks were out anyway (whether YOU think they needed to be or not) so why not get out a little bit earlier when people are traveling and yes people need to slow down! I came over Dutch Hill at 7:30 this morning and the top was snow covered and very slick regardless of how slow I was traveling. We pay good money to have these roads taken care of!

They can't afford to pay the overtime for the Penndot workers because they spent all of the tax money making Cherry Springs nice for the stargazers.

It's too bad Penn Dot is on a budget....

It is GOOD they are on a budget, otherwise there would be MUCH more foolish spending then there already is!!!

The reason they are not going to maintain the roads as well this year is because of their budget and foolish spending .... There has got to be a good 4 or more inches on the road before they will even go out...

That is incorrect....there wasn't nearly that much this morning and I saw 2 trucks between Ulysses and Coudersport.

Anonymous said...

What time was that?? Cause I came from Ulysses to Coudersport at 7:15am and saw 0 trucks between Ulysses and Coudersport and when I slid on North Hollow I was going 25mph would you like me to put it in park and push the car to work??

Rumor has it that PENNDot & the auto insurance companies are in bed with each other. They pay the snow crew NOT to plow in order to raise the rates for PA drivers. Can you spell KICKBACKS?

I drove from Ulysses at 7:30 and was able to go 45 mph or so....I guess it all depends on how much faith you have in your own driving.

But you shouldn't have to have "faith" to drive on these roads. PennDot does nothing! Oops, I'm wrong, they waste a lot of money. Sorry, my mistake... Look at New York State roads. Once you hit Ceres, you don't have to pray for your life or other drivers anymore. It's a joke, these roads in Potter County.

Im sorry to hear all of your wild experiances but I am a state worker and we do try to get out as soon as possible. You may not think about it but it is also our families that have to get out there and travel them roads as well as all of you, so we don't just waist time and dilly dally arround, we get out and take care of the roads as soon as possible. You people do not realize what we have to go through before we can get out there. You have to get called out, get to the stockpile, get trucks started, do papper work, load trucks then try to get out and plow the roads. And as far as the budget goes call your fearless governor and ask him where it all goes. I can gurantee you not were it should go. Also when the roads are bad, people need to leave for were ever they are going a little ealier and drive with more caution. All it takes is a little common sence to drive on the roads in the winter time. """"SLOW DOWN AND SAVE A LIFE"""". Also as far as the New York statement goes, they use pure salt on the roads up there. If you want to drive in that mess and cause your car to rust out in a few years, go up there and drive. I don't know about you, but I can't afford a new vehicle every couple of years. One other thing, if you think that you can do better go get your CDL and come work for penndot, chances are that if you are crashing you little cars and trucks you won't be able to drive a big dump truck with a front plow and a wing on it without crashing that as well.

I worked for Pendot for 6 years and this guy is right!As soon as we got the call,we were gettin out there as fast as we could!It's not like you slide down a fire pole into a loaded truck all ready to go!We busted our butts to provide the best service possible with what we had!My thinking,along with most the other people that worked there was"Nobody's gonna get hurt on my route today"! Most of us put down more material than we were supposed to and hit the roads as much as we could on our 12 hr. shift!You only have so much equipment and resourses at your disposal and a lot of territory to cover!So next time you see Brian Milliron ,Gene Cobb ,Becky Gould or any of the other Pendot employees that get called out in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner or X-mas eve thank them for leaving thier families and risking thier lives to give you the best service possible!Brad Jones-P.

I agree brad I believe some of the blame should be put on management at the potter county office maybe a sooner callout policy is in order

Anonymous said...

I'll go along with that!It's better to be safe ,than sorry!Brad-P. Beach

Here we go again, pointing the finger to blame some one else. they do a great job and people need to relize they get up when they are called. it takes time to drive to get the plows. people need to just take more caution, its Potter County and that time of year. Thanks PENN DOT workers

DannyB said...

I agree...I think the Penndot workers do the best job that they are able too and we should all thank them for the time that they spend in the early hours before work and over the holidays. People just need to learn to drive in the Potter County weather. If you have a hard time driving, switch to an all wheel drive vehicle...if this doesn't work...don't go out on the roads. I've driven here in Potter County my whole life and all it takes is being slow and sure and try to be ready for the unexpected..
