Snow removal: lousy!

Dear Editor:

The latest snow removal strategy is to plow all the snow into barricades along the side of the roads and leave it there to melt.

This makes it nearly impossible to find a path to cross a street.

Woodhaven Boulevard was sporting 3-foot-high packed drifts of packed snow along the sides this weekend.

A Sanitation driver actually pushed snow into the path of my friend who was walking her dog, cutting off the small path she had to cross the street. He said that was what he was told to do, and to call 311 if she had any problem.

During the last major storms we had, the snow was loaded into Dumpsters and removed. Why wasn’t that done this time?
