It's a scene seen all across the state Wednesday. People are helping drivers who got their car stuck in the snow.

In this weather, if you don’t have to get out, then don’t. But if you get out, and get stuck, Taylor Johnson and his four-wheel drive pickup will be a welcomed sight.

"You know, honestly, I like helping people whenever I can. I had a bunch of free time, and I was like, 'I might as well, I have a truck here, and I have the capability to help people that may or may not be familiar with this kind of weather,'" Johnson said.

Johnson is not alone. There are dozens of private citizens loading up their four-wheel drive trucks every time it snows and put themselves in harm's way just to help those in need.

"There’s always the risk, you don’t know if someone is going to be running in to you, they don’t know when to stop, they may not see you. I’m always trying to be careful and watch out, but I’ve been pretty lucky," Johnson said.

A lot of drivers misjudge the slush and even how high the snow is, Johnson said.

Even though these are private citizens working on their own, Johnson said he never charges for his services.
