    I also hate being tailgated by trucks for this reason. Like others before me, I wish his family good health and a speedy recovery.

    This happens quite a bit if you are tailgating and something happens that requires you to slow or stop suddenly and the driver of the tailgating vehicle doesn't leave himself enough room to stop. Happens here a lot with bus drivers. Some NASTY accidents.

    I got hit like that once. The idiot in the second car ahead of me decided he wanted to turn left and braked suddenly. The driver in front of me and I were able to stop in time, unfortunately for me, the one behind me didn't. Lucky for me, I drove a mid-size SUV while she drove a sedan, so her front was bent out of shape while my bumper was relatively unscathed. That's why I'll always go for the big car when I'm driving in the US.


    Oh, and best wishes to the Reid family.

    I have never had that happen to me, but I can imagine it would be scary as hell.

    I personally send my best to the Reid family, thank God reports are coming in that they can feel their extremities, I think his wife will recover with difficulty, looks like the daughter will recover fully and this truck driver needs to be slammed with the full rule of law if he was speeding or reckless in any way, our roads filled with those that don't appreciate the risk they incur when getting behind a wheel and we all seem to think we're Jimmie Johnson upon seatblet buckling, myself included in that.

    Now...there was a thread recently where protestors waited outside cemetaries howling at parents burying dead soldiers, telling the parent that God hated their children and that's why they're dead.

    I believe a court ruling is imminent in this free speech issue, it's a topic of discussion on Debatepolitics in another forum as well.

    So...say protestors were waiting for Reid with signs concerning his wife and/or daughter with similar God hates them because...oh say....he's for abortion funding in the health care bill....is that free speech as many argue the protestors heckling military parents was? If the news had been more dire for Senator Reid....if for example he was informed of a death...as the parents of these military personnel had been informed......would such a heckling on Senator Reid be free speech?

    Just wonderin.

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Here's to a speedy and full as possible recovery!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't think so, if that semi was fully loaded they are lucky to be alive. Those things can get into double digit tons in weight, the physics alone would say just the force they would have endured at highway speed could do that.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Oh, and best wishes to the Reid family.
    This is the one argument I accept on driving giant gas hogs. For the most part, I ridicule the jackass who drives an H2 to work 30 miles on dry pavement every day carrying only himself and his briefcase. Talking to a guy in the kitchen at work a while back, he said "I'm buying my daughter the biggest, ugliest SUV I can find, because I want her surrounded by six feet of metal on all sides."

    Have at it, random kitchen guy.

    Another driving pet-peeve of mine: People who change lanes barely a car length ahead of you, effectively creating a tailgate situation.

    It seems similar to Bidens exprience, tragic I hope they both recover. He is not my favorite politician, but this is a tragedy I wish them all the best.
