Keeping New England’s largest fleet of public works vehicles clean and on the road is a relentless task, but it is vitally important to the longevity of
this massive fleet and to the safety of drivers in Boston.
Winters in New England can be challenging, particularly during blizzards and freezing road conditions. Understandably, it is paramount that Public Works vehicles are well maintained and in good working condition in order to keep roads open for emergency vehicles and the public at large during such conditions.
A key component to maintenance concerns includes cleaning. Not only are clean cars, trucks, plows and other heavy equipment assets better to show and operate, research has proven that over time, clean vehicles promote better mechanical maintenance, have dramatically increased chassis life, are recognized as safer to operate and ultimately save money, time and hardship.
