Here’s something kind of cool; next winter, Spokane County residents may be able to follow the progress of snowplows- on the internet! Some road graders and plow trucks are being equipped with global positioning system devices that show where road crews are and what they’re doing.

There are a couple kinks to be worked out first though- such as how to post the info so that people don’t approach plow operators with demands for service. Here’s how the system will work.

I think this is kind of a cool idea, but some people I’ve talked to say they would rather see the money go somewhere else. What do you think?
