BRIGHTON, MI (My TV20 News at 10) --- It may look like this driver is losing part of his load.

Looks are deceiving.

This is Michigan's newest tool to get snow off the roads.

MDOT showed off its new "Tow Plow" Friday in Brighton.

The plow clears two lanes of snow at a time, and uses half the manpower.

Current trucks can only clear one lane each.

The new plow is assigned to Livingston County, and will clear snow along I-96, and U.S. 23.
