TRUCKS on a HILL - How an icy hill ruins a German trucker's day.........
It has been snowing for some weeks now and our town ran out of salt. So
most smaller roads are quite slippery. The one shown here is no exception,
most trucks spin out here. There are three ways of getting out of that. a)
reverse down the whole hill b) drive through the road on the left c) manage
to get your truck in the LIDL parking lot to the right, which is
narrow...and most trucks get stuck in the snowdrifts on the right side of
the entrance and the left side of the road.....the day before this was
recorded, a truck was stuck there for 30 minutes, but witness someone
easily breaking that record.....

Say Hello to the Tow Plow: A New Weapon Against Snow Covered Hwys
Say hello to the latest weapon against snow covered highways in B.C., the
Tow Plow, a new technology used to maintain our roads. This unit is
actually two plows in one; it allows one truck and operator to do the
equivalent of two passes, which translates into cleared roads, faster!
While the tow plow may look very wide and difficult to handle, it is more
responsive than the traditional wing plows; the operator can quickly
manoeuvre around obstacles on the road like signs or parked cars. This is
fairly new technology, and you can expect to see them on selected B.C.
highways this winter.
TranBC allocates approximately $356 million each year for highway
maintenance with maintenance resources across British Columbia and in every
corner. They are busy each and every day maintaining 42,000 km of road and
