LETTER: Worried about getting new gritters scratched?

A Derbyshire gritter.
A Derbyshire gritter.

What happened to those shiny new gritters Monday last week, and especially at night?

I couldn’t believe the number of accidents as I drove to work. Not a spec of grit salt to be seen anywhere.

I know we are cutting back but at what cost to the drivers?

I rang the council on my arrival at work. I was told that the weather system they use was saying no frost.
It had been on the weather earlier telling us we would have a frost. Maybe the highways department should change their source of information received.

Or maybe they just dont want to get the 15 new gritters scratched?
