Snow Ploughs and Parallel Parking

Could postal trucks be fitted with snow ploughs for getting into side streets during snow storms? The Postal Service must have a fair sized fleet that would be driving those routes anyway. I'm sure there are logistical reasons to do with weight of accumulated snow versus weight of postal trucks that make this idea impossible but it seems like a fairly reasonable idea. Even it they only ploughed shallow snow on a few streets, it would all help. Just thinking out loud. Also why hasn't anyone yet invented the car that can parallel park by simply driving sideways 90 degrees. Do away with all that backing and forwarding. A car should be able to drive up beside a kirb parking, turn the wheels to 90 digrees and then drive sideways crab style into the space. Like I said, I'm just thinking out loud.
