VIDEO: Arlington Plow Takes To The Wrong Side Of The Road

Matt Bush/WAMU

Officials in Arlington County say they've removed a snowplow driver from duty after seeing a video showing the plow traveling on the wrong side of a two-lane road.

Motorist Jason Berry says he recorded the video after the plow nearly hit his car on Military Road on Monday morning. He later posted the video on YouTube.

Berry followed the plow and recorded it on the wrong side as another car approached on a hill. The plow pulled to the side and stopped and the car veered out of the way.

Water, Sewer and Streets Bureau Chief Operating Engineer Dave Hundelt says the driver was taken off street duty as soon as officials learned of the unacceptable behavior. He says people should report safety concerns to the police.
