  1. The city and surrounding communities really need to clear the huge snow banks from driveway entrances. Pulling out of leppanens store on Dawson rd yesterday I could not see if there was any eastbound traffic until I was poking way out into the westbound lane…. dangerous situation!!! I understand snow removal is expensive, and probably back logged right now but, think of the potential lawsuit that arises when the lots management fails to maintain a safe passage to unsuspecting motorists or pedestrians.

    1. so u sit at intersection forever or get out and tell ppl behind you to reverse no somtimes u have to edge out to see and that’s dangerous
