As winter weather nears, Utah Department of Transportation tow plow truck drivers are preparing to tackle snow when it falls.
A tow plow is a 30 ft long trailer that a regular plow truck pulls. It works by swinging out into another lane, effectively doubling the amount of snow a plow can move. It’s also one of the most difficult things to drive on the road.
“You know, you’ve got your front plow, your sanders, your spreaders, the tow plow, you’re shifting gears.”
