'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

I read your headline about road crews being tested by snow squalls (“Snow squalls test road crews,” Dec. 27 and TribLIVE.com). Well, if that was a test, it was a failure in the North Hills.

I have lived in Pittsburgh since 1984 and am astounded that every time it snows here, it is like the first time we have seen snow.

I grew up in Bradford, Pa., where it snows about 20 times more than what we get here. Yet the roads are seldom in bad condition because they plow. If crews plowed the roads in the suburbs, they could reduce the amount of salt and push the snow off the roads.

Maybe somebody from each township should take a trip north to learn about snow removal.

Go to Buffalo, N.Y. It has great road crews (learn something). It's a shame that such a simple concept is lost on so many township road crews.

Put the plow down on the road. It works.
