Subject: BS: on the naming of Snowploughs
Scottish Transport has a map of where the gritter lorries are and it (apparently) reveals their nicknames or their licence plate.
These include Gritallica, Sir Andy Flurry, Gritty Gonzales and the Sir Salter Scott.
a Twatter on the subject
Offers suggestions like Brad Gritt, Salt Disney, Grittney Spears, Spready The Eagle, King Spreadward, GrittyGrittyBangBang, Snowfarah, Ready Spready Go.
& in Doncaster they have Davie Plowie & Gritsy Bitsy
True Grit - or do local Governments have a sense of humour?
What does the Mudcat suggest or has been observed?
Mine? Sleet of Foot, Dust my Vroom, the Drifters and not hilarious but a little subtle Cold Comfort
