Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner blogged about the seasonal nuisance of snow plows refilling shoveled driveways. Several residents in turn complained to police of being snowed-in by plows during the recent blizzard.
But there's also greater damage industrial-strength snow removal can cause, as evidenced by several blotter reports from early February's Nor'easter.
A caller reported to Tarrytown Police on Feb. 9 at 5:10 p.m. that his vehicle had been struck by a plow while parked in the lot at 200 White Plains Road. An officer reported extensive damage to the rear window and passenger side of a car with NY plates. Police confirmed it looked like a plow truck was to blame.
In Sleepy Hollow:
At 333 North Broadway on Feb. 8 at 5:23 p.m., a caller reported that a snow plow driving by had pushed snow and shot debris at their windshield, breaking it.
Police on the scene also reported that a rock thrown by a plow had also broken the front plate glass window of the Cars Auto Repair business there. There was a hole at the bottom left of the window where the rock apparently passed through the glass and went on to damage a television inside.
Police took photos of the scene and notified DPW foreman Richard Gross. A witness confirmed that the window was broken by a passing DPW plow truck.
