    . Ice sheets will fly off a trailer with with such force that vehicles 50 -100 feet back will get nailed. So will oncoming traffic if the wind is right.


    and isn't is a car length for every 10 mph? so that would be about 6 car lengths, shy of 100 feet.





    Yeah right it is always the trucker never rude 4 wheelers

    I never said that, nor do I believe it.





    bro, think about it, moving foward at say 65. that would be 65 feet distance to not be tailgaiting....

    Yet you are not proving how close this happened. People have a tendency to tail gate trucks

    So that guy deserved that because you suspect he was tailgaiting?



    what about the ice that flies into oncoming traffic, effectivly doubling the force.




    d00d, to me there is no excuse. Maintain your vehicle. if your ice flies off your truck and kills someone, you should be charged with negligent homicide.

    Things happen. If a trucker blows a tire or kicks up stones and damages a car that is also his fault. Stop following so close and this will not happen

    Those two things are usually not caused by negligence. You haven't proven tailgaiting... see my pic above from this morning, the only one tailgaiting is the truck.

    He never made it pass the car in the right lane...... the truck couldn't keep up with the flow, so he then eventually turned back into the right lane, and continued tailgaiting the car in the right lane.

    all by that time causing a multi car backup slowing the passing lane to under 50mph in a 65 so he wouldn't be "inconvenienced"....

    Re: U.S. proposes cellphone ban for truck drivers

    As far as I'm concerned, if ya want to yak, yak, yak on the phone while drivin' then pull off to the side of the road. I see too many idiots drivin' along with a phone hangin out of their ears. They are an accident waitin' to happen.

    I think all cell phone use should be banned while drivin'. An it's one of the smarter things our gov't has tried to do....

    Your morbi obesity problem is not my concern.

    Seriously, traffic and tailgaters is one of the main reasons I only pull loads west of the Mississippi. I would rather have a root canal than deliver in the NY,or NJ area.

    I much prefer pulling my permit loads, on one of my drop decks, over the Rockies, or running up and down I-5 dragin containers. Getten to damn old for the NE part of the country, besides getten ready to retire,gonna snuggle up next to that big ole Gov tit.
