High snow banks are making it difficult for drivers

SUV and truck drivers have the advantage

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Even though there’s no snowfall, your visibility might be limited for another reason.

High snow banks are in parking lots and on street corners all across western Massachusetts and it can be difficult to see around them when you’re trying to pull out of a lot onto a major road.

Luz Vasquez of Springfield told 22News it’s scary and dangerous. “If you’re taking a right, taking a left, you can’t see where you’re pulling out of, and sometimes it could cause accidents. Very dangerous.”

SUV and truck drivers have the advantage; being higher up gives them a better view of oncoming cars.
