4. There's a vid on YouTube of a plow in operation and the audio indicates they have a chase vehicle...

With a guy on the radio who can clearly see what is ahead, and talking to the engineer. Telling him itís OK to accelerate, etc.

I looked but I canít find it.

But it seems to me that if they need to call out a plow, it is safe to say they have a clear and open line!

6. I think, these days, a belief in technology, ie. crossing gates.

Smaller roads could use a spotter, I've heard of that.
