    Roads are unreasonable bad. Not a truck in site. No salting. This city continues to drop the ball every storm over 2 inches of snow. Grid lock in freeways and every other road. Sick of it

    I heard that about Brimfield too. Hope they get it cleared, today is my mom's birthday and she insists on going to Red Lobster for lunch. Grew up in Stow, was spoiled with good roads.

    The only time I hated the clean roads was as a kid when still had to go to school! LOL

    I talked to my cousin yesterday, he lives down in green, has an office in tallmadge. Took him 2 hours to get from Arlington/I77 to Gilcrest/I76 (and he got off 77 at 224)

    The real question is...How do so many plowers have time to post on Plowsite when the rest of us were out working all day & night??? Do you guys run dispatch or something?

    I've always found it interesting that a city, county, or state can manage snow and ice any way they want, meaning despite accidents, injuries, and fatalities are never blamed on lack of service. The news/media always just says," the roads were bad and there was a roll over, people died, and oh by the way, the county has now dispatched the plow/salt trucks"

    City do put a plan in place it goes Mains, secondarys, then subs. and That plan would be decided by the council a bunch of idiots that know nothing about snow removal. But theres no accountabillity because if you slide off the ride or crash your at fault. I mean even if u slide off an ice hill or something cause it wasnt treated ur still at faut. big scam i guess
