In the past few days, along with the dwindling temperature, freezing after water spraying on the road caused many pedestrians and electric bike riders to "fall in the air", which has repeatedly happened in many cities. On December 8th, during a visit by reporters, some citizens also expressed the same concerns. For this reason, whether or not to sprinkle water on the road in the winter season has also caused a lot of public discussion.
"I still remember the scene of the fall last year because of the icy road. Although it was not a big deal in the end, I really don't want to eat that kind of loss." Ms. Wu, a resident of Yangdong New Village, recalled to reporters When I encountered a frozen road scene in the winter last year, I complained, "I finished shopping and was going to take the bus to the bus platform to go home. I didn't expect that the bus platform was close at hand, but because of the frozen road, I fell back and forth. For the situation of "hitting" when the road surface is frozen, Ms. Li, a sanitation worker, also vividly remembers it.
"Almost every year when the weather is extremely cold in winter, there are so many people who fall because of the icy road surface. I have seen it several times with my own eyes. Some people are careless and do not pay attention to the icy road under their feet; some It ’s too fast to walk, and also did n’t notice the road surface changing at the foot; there are still a few people who know that the road under the ice is icing, and they still go tentatively on the ice. In their opinion, they are out of curiosity and fun. We As a bystander, I was scared into a cold sweat. "Ms. Li believes that icy roads have great safety hazards both for pedestrians walking and those riding electric cars. "In the final analysis, water spraying in winter should be avoided. After all, in the cold winter season, especially when the temperature drops below zero, outdoor spraying is very likely to freeze, which will inevitably cause passers-by to slip, so I don't think that water should be sprayed on the road in winter." Citizen Ms. Wu Suggested.
With the suggestions of the citizens, the reporter consulted the relevant person in charge of the Tongguan District Appearance Bureau, and the person in charge introduced to the reporter that whether the sprinkler was sprinkled or not, when, and how it was sprayed were constantly changing according to the weather. Adjusted. "For the past few days, the temperature has not dropped below freezing. We will arrange sprinklers to spray water droplets on the road between 8.30 am and 10.30 am and between 3.30 pm and 4.30 pm. This sprinkler method mainly reduces dust and improves air quality without causing ice on the road surface. "The person in charge also said that in addition to dust fall during the day, they will also be from 10 o'clock at night to the early morning of the next day. Use a sprinkler to wash the road at about four o'clock, because at this time there are fewer pedestrians on the road, which will not cause problems affecting pedestrians. "If the temperature falls below zero degrees Celsius in the winter season, we will reduce the frequency of water spraying on the pavement, and even only dust and not sprinkle water to prevent the road from freezing." The person in charge also told reporters that when road area snow obstructs traffic, The bureau will also organize staff to use a forklift to remove snow to ensure smooth roads.
