Snowplow driver covers up cars and blocks driveways—on purpose

The Sideshow

The snowplow driver calling himself Dogg has been ticking off a lot of people.

Mark Hussey, who plows the streets of Lowell, Mass., for a private contractor, made a video of himself as he buried cars in the white stuff and blocked driveways by pushing back the snow shoveled off of them. The worst part: He's loving every minute of it.

The video, which he posted on YouTube, has caught the attention of the winter-weary Web—and confirmed some people’s fears that snowplow drivers make their lives more difficult on purpose, leaving the roads clear, but everyone else pretty much stuck.

Hussey filmed himself through the windshield of his snowplow after a Feb. 10 storm dropped two feet of snow on the area. The local Fox 25 News station interviewed the 47-year-old, whose video showed the joy he took in doing his job just a little too aggressively.

"Oh, I'm sorry, was your car down there?" Dogg is heard at one point as he buries one sedan in snow. "You want to find your car? You come see me, I'll let you know where your car is."

Needless to say, residents are not amused. Al Bedard, who was digging out in Dogg's wake, told the Fox station, "It's very aggravating. You want to throw a shovel at him. It's very aggravating,"

Dogg claims he’s just doing his job, which is to widen the streets. And there's no doubt he enjoys it.

He says on his video, “If you’re plowing, I know you’re not having as much fun as I am.”
