Downed wires and the possible existence of extension cords from gas generators lying across secondary roads hampered the village's ability to plow and sand snow-covered roadways Wednesday evening, according to a message on the village's website.

DPW crews were only able to sand and plow main roads Wednesday night. All other roads that were not plowed will be surveyed during daylight hours Thursday.

"Plowing and sanding was hampered on secondary roads due to downed wires and the possible existence of extension cords from gas generators lying across secondary roads. As a result, those roads will be surveyed during daylight on Thursday, November 8," the message read.

On Salisbury ave off Kilburn rd there are wires on the ground across the street since Sandy, people drive up, thru the safety tape,past the orange cones, look at them,then just drive over them. Some catch them in their wheel wells and drag them. Are the power lines, are they energized?? These drivers they don't know they just want to save two minutes from going around the block ,II guess their felling lucky!!!
