    With these couple snow storms I have seen alot of plow guys with some issues with their warning lights... Almost every time I've seen these guys get out of their trucks and start pounding on their lights.

    This only works if your light is a Halogen Rotator and it's gummed up or froze. Today I saw a guy with a Whelen 9000 bar...One of his strobe tubes were out, it's daylight around noon, Another driver told him he's got a light out... Guess what? You guessed it.. He gets out of his truck and starts bang'n on it yelling and screaming because it wasn't working... Next he decides to take a deadblow mallet to it.. Your right...Lense pieces all over!

    Now this dude is crying, see's me standing there with my snowblower laughing my butt off... Then he cops an attitude with me! What a wonderful individual.

    Oh BTW the other driver had a Code 3 force 4 LP 6105M with a bulb out. Yes Cracked Lense Too!

    Kinda makes you wonder about these people! :laughing:
