The Ohio Department of Transportation is currently adding green strobe lights to snow plows.

Public Information Officer David Rose says the goal is to make the plows more visable for drivers in Ohio and especially in District 10.

Rose says green is the most visable light color for the human eye.

"For ODOT kind of the 4 main factors we focus on are: training our people, having our equipment ready, stocking our materials, and having the technology we need to do our job," says Rose.

Rose says ODOT employees have a one-hundred and fifty point inspection for all snow plows in late summer.
