due to the fact that the plows are necessary for safety they would likely trump a noise ordinance. For drivers and children going to school it is probably impossible for the plows to stop b/w say 11 p.m.-6 a.m. When there is heavy snow the plows must run continuously just to (try) to keep up with the accumulation. At least it is almost over(??).
