The series follows multiple major tow operators, rescue and maintenance crews day and night as they battle to keep traffic flowing along the USA’s most important trade route. These businesses work tirelessly to keep the roads open through any weather conditions.

From monster snowstorms creating kilometres of mayhem to overturned trucks, their efforts prevent the 401 from grinding to a crippling halt through the worst of the winter driving season. It’s about men and women facing incredible stakes in a fast-paced, relentless environment. Jobs and lives depend on these highways – and it’s up to the heavy rescue teams to keep them open.
