The current truck fleet is equipped with salters/sanders, main plows and wing plows. The salter/sander plow trucks can travel much faster with their blades up. Operators may travel with the plow blade raised for several reasons:
- The operator may be headed to a specific area, an accident, or was dispatched to another incident that needs a quick response.
- The operators may be going back to the shop for fuel, repairs, or to reload with sand or salt. If they took the extra time to travel with the plow blade down, the plow area or route to which they were assigned would experience a delay in their service.
- The operator may be headed to the next assigned location and using a route such as a primary ice control route to travel.
My question was not answered above. Now what can I do?
