Canadian winter weather can be pretty unpredictable so if you’re a driver who spends a lot of time on the highway, be proactive and keep our number on hand.
As in the image below, sometimes it is almost impossible to see where the road ends and the ditch begins. Add blowing snow to the mix and the equation becomes even harder to discern. Under extreme conditions it is a testament to the drivers of big rigs that more don’t end up in the ditch.
When temperatures go below -30 ending up in the ditch, whether day or night, presents a whole new set of problems. Not just for the driver of the rig but for the tow truck operators as well. Keeping warm and safe while working with thousands of pounds of frozen steel is a difficult process.
Because the human body is mostly made up of water and we know that water freezes at -32C getting stuck in the ditch on a -40 degree night becomes more of a timely rescue than a tow.
We hope you never find yourself in this position, but rest assured if you do, Big Rig Towing & Recovery offers 24/7 dispatch service!
