GRITTERS have been hitting the roads in full force this morning and in recent days.

As temperatures have dropped to freezing point across the country, and heavy snow has covered many roads in the central belt and up north, Scotland's road maintenance crew have been making the roads as safe as possible.

Scotland's gritters have risen to prominence in recent years due to their hilarious names and a website that allows you to track their movements, and people are loving their names. Each gritter has a more hilarious name than the last, with titles ranging from 'Basil Salty' and 'Walter the Salter' to 'Gonnae Snow dae that?' and 'William Wall-Ice'. A total of 230 gritters operating from over 40 depots around the trunk road network now make up Transport Scotland's winter fleet. Check out the current gritter names and where they are treating the roads this snowy, cold morning here https://t.co/9TL1YCJmU7
