Is he really supposed to be doing that? Check out this Colorado State Trooper going well beyond the call of duty.

Your eyes don't deceive you. That's a Colorado State Trooper assisting an 18-wheeler up a Colorado pass under less-than-desireable conditions.

Okay, I had to ask, is the patrol car really providing any assistance? I would like to believe so, but then again, this is like an ant pushing grizzly bear up the side of a hill. I reached out to a friend of mine, truck driver and guitarist-extraordinaire Steve Harding of the band Lever Action. Here's what he had to say.

I couldn't imagine driving a truck up a mountain in the snow. Check out this video of a semi trying to get up a snow-covered hill.

It's none of my business, but if I were the guy in the jeep at 2:06, I think I'd be putting a little more distance between me and the semi.

Here's to you, Colorado State Patrol officer. That's the most extreme example of doing somebody a solid ever recorded.
