Why don't plow drivers specifically clear to the north side of the street?

For safety and efficiency, plow drivers cannot change plow directions based on the street. Especially when snow is actively falling, it is not possible for them to choose a specific side of a narrow, residential street. Town priority is to plow residential roads from the center outward, providing one passable lane, placing snow along the side. This prevents favoring one side over another and is time efficient.
