    Yep, that happened here in Atlanta. Nobody was hurt…

  • Gary

    That shouldn’t have happened…He wasn’t plowing the hole thing.

    First you say it, then you do it.

    So, that deck can hold all the cars, snow, and debris. But once a fairly small truck drives over one of the concrete plates it collapses?
    I don’t think I’d even want to park my car there.

    Umm, that’s not a small truck. And consider that the back is full of sand and/or salt, that weighs many, many times more than a car.

      And the distribution of the light cars and snow vs the concentration of the heavy truck and its load has a lot to do with it as well.

      Sander is exactly right… Cars weigh around +/- 2 tons, that truck can weigh around 15-20+ tons, with another 10 tons or more of load.

    First there is only a couple inches of snow, second, they are all trucks/4W. Third, it’s just making it worse.
    Is this our Russian funny de jour?

  • Richard

    First, there was up to six inches or snow and ice, second, that loaded dump truck is 5-6 times heavier than an SUV, third how does scraping off all of the snow make it worse?

    Up to 6″, yep, where the wind blew it into corners. I see tire below hubcap. So maybe 3″ or 4″ at most, If you need plowing for that with a 4 wheel SUV, what’s the point of a SUV? Snow on the roof of the vehicle is only an inch or two.

    It makes it worse because the plow builds up a pile behind you making it harder to backup.

    You obviously have never shoveled your driveway only to have a plow come down the street and leave a 3 foot mound of snow in front of your house.
