I've read complaints about snow plows filling in driveways ["Plows block driveways and endanger residents," Letters, Jan. 12]. There may be nothing they can do about that, but they can slow down.

On the afternoon of Feb. 5, after I spent a couple of hours cleaning up, three plows came through so fast that they not only filled in my driveway, they threw snow up onto the lawn, covering the sidewalk.

I am 82 years old and can't be cleaning the sidewalk two or three times because the plow drivers don't know how to do their jobs right.
