Why do residential areas get plowed last?

We must keep major streets open to allow buses, emergency vehicles away to get to all parts of our City. As soon as we are certain major streets are clear, equipment is moved into residential areas.
Major Streets: We have twenty so-called "First Attention Routes" with a total of 150 lane miles to be plowed. These routes are top priority during a snow event.
