The majority of MD drivers shouldn't be allowed in a vehicle during a weather event involving precipitation .

Great engineering....good way to handle various road widths - I like how he can just tuck it behind when needed - Like to see it move some real snow - my favorite are those toppers that go over the tops of the guide rails to push the snow way in for the next storm

That looks like a really bad accident waiting to happen.

I agree - looks like a certain jack knife in any kind of emergency maneuvering. And, those damn drivers are exhasted half the time and driving in horrible weather coinditions. The last thing they need is another distraction while plowing!!

First think that popped into my mind when the video started was, why are those vehicles tailgating the snowplow?
