|Proposal status:||Inactive (inactive)|
|Definition:||A structure which helps lorry drivers to remove ice and and snow from the roof of their vehicles.|
Lorry drivers are usually required to remove ice and snow from their vehicles as they pose a safety hazard when falling on the ground. In order to allow drivers to reach the roof, structures (e.g. made of scaffolding) have been erected along some major highways. They are called "Räumstation" in Germany.
