Snow Plow Driver Rodeo
The Sussex County Division of Public Works participated in the 1st Annual Statewide Insurance Fund Snow Plow Driver Rodeo on November 6, 2019 held at the Sussex County Fire Academy. The event was open to Municipal and County Government Employees.
The Snow Plow Driver Rodeo was an opportunity for drivers to demonstrate their driving skills in a safe, fun and competitive environment. Participants were asked to steer through a course that challenged them to manage the hazards and obstacles they encounter while plowing. The course tested a driver's skills by challenging them to complete left and right turns, maneuvering around parked cars, serpentine turns, backing into a loading area, and pushing objects. Drivers were evaluated on their ability to navigate the course in a safe and error free manor. The event included commercial (CDL) and non-commercial (non-CDL) driver categories. The Sussex County Division of Public Works had 11 employees participate in CDL event category.
