Sir Salter Scott, Grittie McVittie and Ready Spready Go: Exploring Scotland’s ice gritter names
You can even track them online
Back in November 2016 the Scottish government launched an online tracking service which allowed you to track the country's ice gritters – and learn their ingenious nicknames.
Luke Snowalker, Grittie McVittie and Gritty Gonzales are just some of the names used for the gritters – thought up by Scotland's own school children in 2006.
Primary school kids submitted entries to the Transport for Scotland competition and, as you'll see, the results were amazing.
