Street cleanings turn dangerous in Yekaterinburg
In one instance, a motorist who visited a city forum said that he was fortunate to see the ice on the road before it was too late, allowing him to slow his car from 60 miles per hour to 30 miles per hour. He was driving at 7:40 a.m. when he noticed the shining road. He recommended that other drivers wait until at least 9:00 a.m. for the ice to melt, New Region reports.
Yegor Stall, the city's deputy chairman of landscaping in control of improvements, said the watering machines were a necessary evil. Without the machines to clean the streets, citizens in Yekaterinburg would choke on the dirt and dust.
Motorists in Yekaterinburg saw the workers using the watering machines on Malyshev and Lunacharsky Streets and came to the city forum to voice their complaints. The motorists compared the conditions of the roads to the consistency that might be found on an ice rink.
Stall said that the number of watering machines will be gradually reduced as the weather continues to change during the next few months, New Region reports.
