Driveway Friendly Snowplow

Snowplow that doesn't fill in your driveway.
  [vote for,

Ever shovel out your driveway only to have the snowplow come by again and fill it in with a foot or two of heavy, icy, chunky snow? Why not ask your ever-benevolent town to spend some of the big bundles of cash they never fail to collect every year to add a little feature to their big plows? Namely, a flat plate that flips down on the right end of the plow blade to briefly block the cascade of snow from going smack into your freshly-cleared driveway entrance. Come to a driveway, flip down the plate, carry that snow past said driveway, then flip up and the snow goes where the driveway isn't. Could even be triggered by a snowbank opening sensor. Call it a smart plow.

       C4 would be your friend for this one, we think. Fifty grams every metre or so, on det cord.

       In Chicago a mayor lost the election due to streets not being plowed quickly. The new mayor had one snowplow followed by a conga line of tow trucks. The snowed-in parked cars were yanked out almost as quickly as the plow could progress. Was fun to watch.   

       Certainly proved to me all politics is local. Vote early and vote often.

       I knew I'd read this idea before...

       Thank you 2 fries. Baked for sure. Just not in my town.

       I don't know about baked, I just had the same idea is all.   

       I forgot an important rule: search Halfbakery before posting!

       Looks fairly redundant to me, given 2 fries posting. In fact it's almost identical.
