Someone needs to patent this idea! STAT!

A police officer in Richmond, Maine is a genius! He decided to strap a shovel to his bike to clear all of Thursday afternoon's snow from the parking lot, as seen on this video on WMTW. And, it's working like a dream machine... Well, almost. That "snow bike" will come in handy Friday morning, after the blizzard is over.

It's true that necessity is the mother of invention.
