Question: Buried In? Or Not?

I know these guys do their best to keep the streets clear, but I do wish there was a way they could “lift their blades” whenever they pass a driveway. I understand that in some cities, residents can actually stick a red flag or something by their driveway, and the snowplow drivers see it, and “don’t plow there”. Once, I went outside, only to find my Chevy Chevette literally BURIED by the snowplow. And, that plowed snow is packed, concentrated, and is far harder to shovel than the freshly fallen stuff. I was so mad at the city, I took my shovel, proceeded to liberate my car, throwing the snow BACK INTO the street. It’s a good thing the cops didn’t come by and catch me doing that. I woulda been cuffed, taken into custody, and my snow shovel woulda been used as evidence against me. Isn’t life grand?CDADave/Thin Air.

Question: Do the snowplow drivers lift their gates or bury your driveways in? BTW, CDADave wants to know if anyone can recognize where the photo above was taken.
