Odd-even parking violators slow GR snowplows

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — After several inches of snow blanketed the city Monday, Grand Rapids city plow driver Kay Weeda was among the drivers working 12-hour shifts to clear the streets.

The effort was slowed by frigid temperatures.

"We can't throw salt down on this. All it's going to do is just freeze and turn to ice," Weeda explained.

Another challenge: drivers failing to follow the odd-even parking ordinance.

"That car's not even up to the curb. It's going to be real close," Weeda noted as he slowly maneuvered his 50,000-pound truck between cars parked on either side of a street on the city’s north side.
