Default You can track gritters in Scotland and they have incredible names

There's nothing we Brits love more than silly names for vehicles. Combine that with the excitement of live gritter tracking, and you've got yourself a social media hit.
Scotland's gritters have risen to prominence thanks to a website that lets you track their movements, and people are loving their names.

You've got to zoom in a bit on the tracking website to see the names, but they're great! Apparently they were named by school children in a contest several years ago.

No True Grit? No Gritty McGritface?

I do like that they used Mr Plow, but "corrected" the spelling.
