Cities are faced with the challenge of doing more with less. Often this is accomplished by operating equipment faster, but as we know, this can sometimes lead to more problems.
It goes something like this; an employee operating the snow blower is blowing snow from a sidewalk when the unit catches a water valve, sidewalk edge, or other hidden obstruction. This causes the operator to lunge forward, into the cab, windshield, steering wheel, etc., causing pain and injury, along with damaging the equipment and infrastructure; all costing time and money.
