  1. There’s a perfect example that tractors crash everywhere not just on 102 so to everyone that thinks 102 is the problem give your a head a shake and realize this s**t happens all over

    1. You mean it is not 102? I thought all the truck accidents happened there.

      We really need to be more tolerant of truck drivers. They bring us almost everything we need.

  2. When a car hits the ditch or rolls over on the highway how come no one causes a scene about that… could still kill someone sane as a truck. No one ever thinks about that or what?

  3. This is an example of why you need more portable scales, with that street sweeper on the back of the trailer I highly doubt 60% of the weight is forward. Those trailers never should have been loaded like that. I hope the driver in the shipper take huge heat for this.
