GPS Trackers Helping Buffalo, NY Dig Out
Anyone who's seen the nightly news lately knows that New York residents have seen well more than their fair share of snowfall this winter. To aid in the daunting task of removing ton after ton of snow, Buffalo New York officials have employed the use of GPS tracking systems. The GPS trackers are used to determine the where resources are needed the most, and can even provide information on whether each driver's plow is up or down. The same GPS tracking system is also set to be put in use during the summer months for street maintenance and trash removal.
