Schools in Buckinghamshire have named the county's gritting vehicles - with Dave, Abominable and Gritter Bug some of our favourites.
Each of the 25 machines will be able to be tracked by their name as they travel around the county helping to keep the roads safe.
45 schools entered the competition run by Transport for Buckinghamshire in October and 416 names were suggested.
From these 25 names were chosen to christen each vehicle in the fleet.
Steve Jenkins, Network Operations Manager for Transport for Buckinghamshire said,
"We hope that getting the schools involved in this way will raise the profile of our gritting operation and this will help people to support the hard work that goes into keeping our roads safe.
"I am looking forward to seeing our newly named gritters out on their routes this winter and hope that the school children are proud to see the gritters that they named on duty."
The chosen names and which schools they came from are:
You will be able to follow the gritters on Transport for Buckinghamshire's Service Information Centre in real time.
