They have been using them for 4-5 years over here in the west side. The beam marks where the side plow is so the driver can pick off mailboxes with ease

I witnessed this for the first time heading up north last winter. I was in Genesee Co. It was night time. That was pretty sketchy...

My neighborhood was cleared when I left for the office but neither Lone Pine Road nor Telegraph looked like they had been plowed and I didn't see any trucks working either side of Telegraph.

Same here, I drive to Imlay City from White Lake every day and it always seems like the roads are a shitty in Oakland county. I take all back roads to work. From Elizabeth lake road and Williams to Sashabaw and Seymour the roads where complete shit. As soon as I hit Seymour and Sashabaw the roads where nicely cleared and salted.

I'm surprised by this, I always expect the plow guys to clear the back roads well before the primary roads. I guess I've had it all wrong.

Saw the green lasers on the Wixom trucks the other night.They also have green flashing lights on rear of vehicle. I hope they change to red when they hit the brakes or stop.
