The Lowell police department has a graphic warning for anyone who thinks they can go up against a city snow plow with nothing but a shovel.
They posted the warning to their Facebook page.
"People people people!!!! Please do not walk out in front of a city snow plow with your shovel challenging our drivers not to plow in your driveway. 26,000 lbs of metal and salt does not stop on a dime.
If the truck doesn’t crush you and kill you instantly, the blade will dismember your body and you’ll bleed out before any help arrives. Sorry for the graphic detail, but this is serious stuff here.
I don’t like shoveling out the end of my driveway either, after I already had it done, but it’s the nature of living in Michigan.
We have someone wanting to be a Darwin Award Candidate. Not something to be proud of."
