As crews continue plowing snow throughout Maryland, officials are reminding you to share the roads and drive safely.

Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration officials say 2,500 snow crews have been deployed since Saturday evening treating roads, and clearing out snow.

And if you head out you’re likely to spot one, but officials say to slow down, and leave enough room for crews to tackle the job.

“We did have one incident involving a vehicle, involved in a rear-end crash with a piece of equipment of one of our contractors late last night. As traffic increased in the early morning hours, we did start to see some minor incidents. It’s a strong reminder in often cases, it appears these vehicles were traveling too fast for conditions,” explained spokesperson for the Maryland State Highway Administration, Lora Rakowski.

Officials advise leaving about six-to-seven car lengths of distance behind snow plows when traveling.
