IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Some neighborhoods in Idaho Falls may feel they are being left out on having their streets plowed.

The city is thanking residents living on an unplowed street for their patience.

There have been a number of reasons slowing down snow plow operations, but having to move people's cars is a big problem for the delay. 

On Monday, 120 cars were towed, and on Tuesday, 192 cars were towed just in Zone A.

Towed cars were moved over to the next available street or alley not being worked on.

Moving cars off the roadways will help the city get through more streets quicker.

One homeowner living in Zone B, who would like to remain anonymous, shares what she thinks about her street going unplowed.

"In my experience, unless we have heavy snowfall we don't get plowed at all. So the street will get really icy as it compacts. If we get a large accumulation, they do come, but it's often later after the snow event and so by then it's all packed down and there are deep ruts in the road. It's a challenge sometimes to drive here in the winter."
