    That`s actually not the greatest plow job... a couple of those trucks weren`t really doing anything, and the road still wasn`t clear when it was done. In Colorado, we generally just drive over the snow; saves time and money, and the roads end up about as safe either way.

    @ Lillim - the `idle` ones were spreading salt / sand.

    Yup! That`s Canada all righty!
    Probably near Toronto (Tah-RAN-Tah) eh? Oh, it says so in the video`s title... nevermind!

    @Lillim ...on the other hand you probably don`t get as much snow. And like it was mentioned already, the other trucks were just salting and sanding.

    That was totally pathetic. In Colorado they`d do the same job with 4 plows going 60 mph.

    I like to imagine that`s the song that was playing in all of the trucks too.

    In Maine we have the plow trucks salt and sand at the same time. I am wondering if maybe some where just heading back to a garage or something because they were done.

    Why would I even click on a video that depicts long, drawn out visuals of snow fleets that I can view outside my window? Guess I`m a fool yet again.

    @Lillim, whilst Colorado really does get a considerable amount of snow there isn`t really much of a way to drive over the 45cm dump with massive snowdrifting that occurred in Montreal on December 27th, 2012 in under 24 hours.

    It sucks being stuck behind these guys when you have somewhere to be. Sure im grateful they clear our roads but lately there has hardly been enough snow for them to go out and clear but they do anyways, they just scrape the ashphalt. Our tax dollars hard at work again.

    @fakebacon, your kidding right? Toronto hardly even gets enough snow accumulation to justify having plows the last few winters, especially compared to a place like Colorado.

    Seems like a lot of them weren`t plowing much, and there wasn`t much to clear to begin with. Maybe they were traveling as a group to split off later in different areas?

    Aus must save so much money since we outlawed snow in the early 1900s

    You Canadians are seriously suggesting saving money by cutting back on the plows you have?

    Would you like to pop over to the UK to see what happens when you do that?

    This is how it`s done in Boston too. It`s one of the most impressive ways of plowing snow I`ve ever seen.

    Well, when you have as much snow as us, you get pretty good at it.

    Do that in Mass too but I think it`s usually about 4 to 5 trucks.

    They do this where I live... granted, there`s only two lanes going in any one direction, but still.

    But they always neglect the turning middle turning lane, or suicide lane as I like to call it.
