THE BRONX - Residents in one Bronx neighborhood say a large pile of snow is blocking line of sight for drivers, and could be dangerous for pedestrians who are walking.

They say snow left behind after the blizzard and piled up by the Department of Sanitation at the intersection of Reed Place and Country Club Road is dangerous.

Just a few days ago, residents say the snow was piled as high as the street signs. They say the warmer weather has helped to melt some of the snow, but it isn't enough.

"The snow is still here," one neighbor says. "It's very dangerous because when you come out of the block, people who are driving can't see the cars coming."

The Department of Sanitation has since cleared that area of snow.
