Give the plows some room!

18 posts in this topic

Many times when plowing it amazes me how poeple will not move out of the way. I truly don't think a full understanding of the power the snow coming of the plow has.

A few days ago I was running errands around the lake and met a V-plow. Now I plow and work with these guys everyday and have a good understanding of what goes on from the drivers seat of a V-plow, although this time I thought the plow was going to the left but he went to the right and I was caught in the path of the flume.

The truck below started the day with good windshield, full grill, all the lights (including corner markers and blinkers), four matching tires and did not leak antifreeze.

It finished the day with the bottom of the windsheild layed flat against the dash, grill destroyed, lights removed from the front, bent mirrors, leaking raditor, bent fender, destoyed wipers and wiper motor, and the gas tank ripped of the auger in the back of the truck. This all happened in a second from soft, fluffy, harmless snow coming of a V-plow.

So the next time you meet a V-plow give them a little room. wink.gif

I thought the unwritten rule was, when 2 cars are headed at eachother stay to the right. That's what us city folk do anyways smile.gif

Well when you live and work within the boundaries of the triangle stuff happens. I know it does to me when I just visit on the weekends.

These guys are experiencing prolonged exposure. laugh.gif

Good to see cookie monster survived.

Heck, a few dozen rolls of duct tape and a couple auger extensions and she's back in action!!!!

It doesn't quite have the character of Foster's busted windshield tho. That smudged imprint of Foster's face in the cracked glass gave it a special little touch. grin.gif
