One thought on “Ice Road Truckers on the History Channel

  1. Saw the ice runners and thought it was kinda crazy, then again blacktop isn’t always great either. Anyone that maybe able to put a suggestion forth was my thought to improve safety. The same way concrete is reenforced for strength would be directly under the ice was floating reenforcements to give the ice more strength, less shift as it creates ice all around a submerged reenforcment. steel/plastic coated with removable floats. similar to military overwater bridges submerged to freeze into the ice. Less cracks and safer truckers. Cost saved in what must be a severe recovery fee. Light>medium duty trucks can also pull some pretty healthy loads as well reducing tractor trailer weights is another safer option? Thanks Ethan Owner/Operator of towing/light transport.Rochester,NY
