Snowplow Drivers

Operating a snowplow is more than just driving a big vehicle. The job of a snowplow driver involves long hours and work that can be mentally and physically taxing. Fatigue is a common problem, especially during extended storms. Concentration is needed at every moment to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians. Do you ever wonder what it’s like to be inside a snowplow cab, or what a day is like as a snowplow driver?
