    Now that I can agree with, however that would again lead back to the rear pilot car not doing their job and running blocker...With that load the driver can not see to just slide over, that's why there is a pilot car.

    Apparently the answer to that is yes. Instead of work projects to restore infrastructure during the economic collapse, we spent all our money making bankers and wall street execs richer. All for the glory of the corporate entity.

    It wasnt maintenance it was faulty design.
    Oh, ok, my bad: I don't see how any part of the permit or permitting process could ever place responsibility of bridge design on the driver.

    Seems like just the other day Obama said the trillions he was spending was for shovel ready jobs and to fix roads and bridges.

    Now that's what I was just thinking, is that what this thread needs is an anti corporate rant....

    No, but that wasn't exactly an anti corporate rant.

    We should have let them fail. All I have to say in this thread about it.

    Can't disagree with you there LoP....I suspect there is probably much we do agree on, it is just this where we seem to have a healthy disagreement.

    Looks like I missed the news on this. The bridge reopened on the 19th.
