Semper Fidelis, Semper Liber.
Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
Plenty of older drivers out there.
Trucking is a tough industry, the real stars of america drive the trucks that keeps america running. Not over paid athletes, actors and musicians.
No where near enough respect for our drivers that work up to 14 hours a day and 70 hours a week.
99% of all goods you buy were shipped by truck.
The toll road worker killed and trooper injured on I-88, the company who the driver worked for had numerous safety violations too, the driver charged with vehicular homicide, and the company's license revoked, and no doubt, insurance company will shell out thousands, if not millions of dollars for stupidity.

The Dan Ryan driver might have been distracted, or experienced a medical problem, it's too early to tell.
But, if there's an air leak left unattended, it can cause the brakes to lock up. I have seen truckers crimp off flexible air hoses with visegrips to stop air leaks.
Catastrophic failure of brakes is possible if the company neglected to keep them in good repair.
If brakes lock up, yes, that could be catastrophic.
