MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- The heavy snow has made it difficult to drive around West Michigan. Road crews are desperately trying to keep up. To make their job easier, some communities have winter parking rules in place.
Muskegon does not, but that could change next week.
The city council may now be ready to pass winter parking restrictions. At intersections like Larch and Elwood, the problem is evident: a dozen vehicles are all parked on the snow-covered streets. It creates an obstacle course for City of Muskegon plow driver Troy Marciniak.
"That is as close as I feel comfortable getting to it," Marciniak says of taking the plow down a constricted street.
Those vehicles are legally parked, but Marciniak says, "It makes it difficult with all of the vehicles in the way, for sure." It's even more troublesome when it's snowing and the vehicles are hard for plow drivers to see.
