Snow job

This bothers me every single time it snows: Why do the plow crews largely give up and go home around 9-10 p.m.?

I know they're probably trying to save money on overtime. I know that there are fewer cars on the road later at night. But fewer doesn't equal none, and we all pay taxes, too. For that matter, if all of my tax money could only be spent on one thing, it would be snowplowing, making sure that the roads are clear and safe at all times.

Basically, by being lazy about plowing late at night, these crews are saying that the lives of day workers are more important than those of night workers. That's bullcrap. My life has no less value than a day-side worker's. And I pay taxes, too. Shouldn't I be entitled to safe roads just as much as a day person?
