Even the police got stuck

I live in Red Deer on 42nd Street between 56th and 57th Avenues in West Park.

I know I am not the only street to have snow on it either, but what I find strange it that the City of Red Deer can send four or five city workers and another cop out to push a cop car that is stuck in the middle of the road, but they can’t afford to send a snowplow quickly to make a couple passes to clear a street that has not seen a snowplow since last year.

We have had three major snowfalls in just about a month and my street was not touched for some time. I spoke to a lady at the city office who claims they could keep up with it and I explained to her that where I come from they have no problems keeping up with it and that my dad has been working for city roads for 27 years in the City of Brampton, Ont., which is a large part of the GTA in Ontario.

I have attached a picture of the cop car stuck in the middle of my street. So what happens if someone needs the cops, or a fire truck, or even worse an ambulance?

I may not be the best writer but this is my story and I think we need to get some information out and people need to stand together and with your help (the newspaper) we might be able to get some better road maintenance — hell, even bring in a consultant from Ontario if need be to show them how it’s done.
