    this guy left his car in one of the lots we plow, it says in our contracts "that to avoid damage to other vehicles cars that are left in lots will be plowed in" hahaha

    this is kinda hard to see but there is a car in there

    Doesn't look too bad, I'd say you were pretty nice. Looks like you could have buried it a lot more than that........

    At the school I plow there is this security guard that always gets in our way when plowing, so arund 2 or 3 in the morning he gives up following us and falls asleep in the worst spot. We honked our horns and nothing, wouldnt wake up and move car so we would plow him in. By the time he woke up we were out of there doing other accounts... I wish I had a camera...

    I hope that guy was an employee of the business you plowed and just ignored the rules of your contract. Because if he wasn't and that was my car I would sue you. In my opinion that is completly uncalled for. You couldn't just plow around him? Your a rookie.

    Looks more like a major drift vs. you plowing it in. Actually that ain't nothing, if you want to see how it's done, come to my area.
    During the storm last week I had a guy actually pull into the lot I was plowing at 3:15 AM :dizzy:, get out and walk across the street to his house. Now I figure he must of been on his way home from having a few:drinkup: cause who would do that while the plow truck is there and expect no retaliation ????

    Come on now, what is wrong with these people, and to top it off, the place I plow sent a certified letter to each resident across the street saying " if your vehicle is left in the lot during a storm is will be plowed in "

    Gotta love America, get wronged, I'll sue your butt.

    What a stupid comment, what are you going to sue him for? Plowing a car in? Tell me how that's a civil matter or criminal action? No damage, nobody got hurt, get over it and don't park your car where it doesn't belong.

    Better watch it, the property owner can have you ticketed for trespassing, that'll stick long before a civil lawsuit will. You won't even find a weasel that would file it for you. And the judge will laugh you out of court.

    That's why everything costs so much today, stupid, frivolous lawsuits and this kind of mentality that goes along with it. :realmad: :realmad:

    That is mostly a drift and it looks like he jsut plowed around it. If he wanted to really screw the guy he could have pushed a pile right up to the sides and front of it and have it sitting out a couple of feet from the car. I make a swipe by them like he did and go on my way. But if they do it where i store snow then that is a different story. Plowed in a van last winter that sat right in my deposit place. Got a call from the bank saying some guy came in ranting in raven cause the pile was as high as his van. they thought it was pretty funny and told the guy not to park it there. he was lucky he did not have it towed. only thing is cost him was his time to dig it out. never saw the van there again......

    Agree with Oomkes with his response. But if you look he didnt plow the car in and did "plow around him". There are no piles on the side or front of the car...just the burm from the trailing snow off the plow. What would be the grounds of the lawsuit? The car never got touched

    For the record, i would do the same thing, are we supposed to plow away all the snow from any cars parked in the lot? No

    sue me??? it really isnt that bad most of it is cause i plowed around it and then snow kept pilling up, and if "better safe then sorry" makes me a rookie then by all means im a rookie and that car is still there and with the past two storms we have gotten since that picture was taken that car has gotten worse, like everyone else said i could have made it worse

    To all Plow Site guys, sorry for PLOW-DUDE's comment's, he un-fortunately lives in my state :dizzy: This is why my insurance for plowing has tripled in the past few years, cause of sue-happy people like him. He apparently dosen't have insurance !!

    if the car is still there i would call the local PD and have them run the plate and find out whats up. there has to be a reason that that car is still sitting in the lot for that long and hopefully its the owner is on a business trip and not something worse.

    Just for your information, I have never sued anyone in my life. That has no bearing on whether I have insurance for my business or not. I may have used the wrong choice of words, but I was just upset that he had to plow in some poor guys car when he could have easily worked around it. Who knows why that car was there, but did it really deserve to be completely burried? I don't know, but I wouldn't have done it. No offence to anyone. Sorry.

    If I remember correctly OakHill has only commercial accounts and has a pretty decent drive between the places where they are, time is $$ you guys know that...but hey he was nice about...

    you guys remember what college parking lots look like, ugh...that's the second to worst part about being in school...

    Exactly...He didn't cover the car...but, HE did, if you know what I mean. From the looks of it, if he wouldn't have plowed so close to the car, the guy would have a lot more snow to move just to get it out (Hope he wasn't in the car at the time...LOL).

    haha if I had something like that in my contract, I would have done allot worse. That actually looks like he plowed around him more than anything.
