What causes Winter Road Issues?
The main culprits of winter road issues are snow and ice.
Neighbors living in Fairlawn Heights said they experience the problem every year and are frustrated they have to repeatedly contact the city for help. Max Steiner said he recorded a video of a school bus struggling to drive up an icy hill on Southwood Road before turning around Friday.
“Getting the mail is a hazard, kids in school buses are a hazard, people out walking their dog or walking in the evening is a hazard,” Steiner said. “What’s more concerning is we pay an exorbitant amount of taxes that do not seem to be going to simple services you should not have to request.”
Where do you go to report Winter Road Issues?
The above quote indicates that it can be very frustrating when having to deal with the same problem repeatedly without having the satisfaction of a workable solution, which can be implemented each winter. This frustration can lead to a lack of trust in a system that requires the payment of high taxes, and which is viewed by some as being inefficient. However, there is an alternative and more efficient option. If there is a problem with winter road issues that you want to report, then either call your local public service provider or, more conveniently, use our free service to have the issue redirected to the right person in the right department, in the right agency.

Why are Winter Road Issues important?
We all know that the winter months typically bring with them rather unsavory weather. Winter road issues result when roads are hazardous due to snow and ice. This leads to slippery roads which impede travel, and cause delays and accidents. All of which is very dangerous, and as mentioned, can be frustrating to local residents and commuters. At PSR we continuously analyze the frequency of types of Service Request made to Public agencies, and winter road issues are frequently reported during this time of the year. PSR may be able to help by making the reporting process easier, faster, less frustrating and interactive, with feedback from the Public Service Provider all the way to resolution.
