Why would your job require you to perform your duties in an unsafe manner?
Because if you stop in a snowplow it leaves a huge mound of snow because you lose the forward momentum required to “peel” the snow and chute it off the roadway. The sander requires a certain RPM for the hydraulic PTO to cast sand over the entire lane. We try to time the lights as we approach but sometimes lady luck doesn’t smile and if there are no cars waiting to go through we proceed with caution. Bear in mind, usually this is done in the middle of the night with little or no traffic.
