Tractor vs. Ditch
Tractor vs. Ditch. This is the second mower dangerously tipped in a local ditch this week, along with a delivery truck precipitously tilted in a ditch on Clove Rd. in Blooming Grove. Highway workers have a challenging task because they have to dig deep ditches along the roadsides in the Schunnemunk area to enable better drainage and prevent flooding. Then they have to mow the edges. Private mowers are less able to handle slopes. Truck drivers need wait to pull over by the side of the road until there is a space with plenty of room. Tip-overs in some of these deep ditches have the potential to be life threatening.
