QUEENSBURY - This winter, plow drivers will have extra protection from  
an electronic Big Brother.

The town is buying a geofencing system from Verizon for $16,000 a year.  
The system will continuously track all 70 town vehicles.

"This system will alert us if there is something unusual," town
Supervisor John Strough said. "If a plow is motionless for an hour,
that is a problem. That might be an emergency situation. Maybe the
driver had a heart attack. Hopefully not."
