NYC Demolition Derby

December 29th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized

Since my children are into towtrucks AND frontloaders alike, I thought I’d post this little gem from the blizzard, in which the Department of Sanitation either let toddlers or meth-heads try to dig one of its vehicles out from a snowbank. It’s a bit long, and features gratuitous guy-in-boxers glimpses, but it’s nice reminder of the sometimes-terrifying NYC bureaucracy. In a city that has no less than 30,000 cops, for example, it may not surprise you that the Ford Explorer getting destroyed by the Dept of Sanitation is also a city-owned vehicle.
