I think that plowing most cul-de-sacs is unnecessary and frustrating to both the operator and the home owners. The circle is too small and the plow just makes a mess. Unless we get over 20 centimetres of snow it is not necessary. This method would cut down on time spent and let the plow move onto the areas that need it the most. There is also no need to salt and sand a cul-de-sac unless it is on a hill. This would hopefully help to keep our burgeoning budget in check. I also think if you know how to drive, the merge lane by Baljet is long enough, especially when you DO NOT come to a stop before trying to merge.
