That has to be one of the best ways to handle a situation like that!
I wonder if any of us need our garbage picked up .25 seconds faster as obviously that is what this garbage hauler is trying to do, right?
60 mph on I-93 SB nearing I-95 Interchange in Canton, MA.
Our intrepid road reporter saw this on I-90 Westbound near Palmer, MA this past January... Yet another very bad accident just begging to occur
Carris Reels Big Rig on a Porsche Cayenne at 65 + mph - Shame on you!
Interstate 90 westbound near Millbury and highway 122 at about 65 mph.
Gunther Transport in Hanover, MD.
Typical aggressive tour bus operators. When they plow into someone, usually only 8 to 10 die so it must be worth it?
On I-95 NB in MA an Air Gas Propane truck was a bit to close. Isn’t it nice to know a truck with an explosive load capable of leveling a city block is right on your tail?
Here's a winner:
What is it with US Mail contractors?? The USPS farms mail transport
out to some of the absolutely *worst* companies and OOs out there,
and that seems to hold true in most areas of the country. Are they
lowest-bidder or something, thus likely to have the poorest-behaved,
aggressive, right-off-the-street-without-training drivers? For
people supposedly representing part of our government or its
agencies, they certainly don't exhibit one whit of care for their
fellow citizens on the roads. If they want to put random people
they don't know in harm's way then they need to go over to Iraq
and do it there, not on our own soil to our own countrymen.
The cab said "CGT" on the wind-deflector on the roof, but I can't
find any reference to who the carrier might actually be. Nothing
to identify it on the trailer. This is common -- these guys enjoy
far too much anonymity, and they probably know they're hard to
track down when needed.
is there a tag on that trailer at all?
This really sucks to see
A Prius-II way to close to a box truck on I-495 north near Taunton, MA.
...sigh.... Makes us look bad
Based on the left front fender, the Prius driver is a slow learner.
Beat me to it, Kirk!
Probably no tag on the trailer. Similar to the mail delivery truck/van things, no tag, just a 6-8 digit serial number on the rear with decals. I assume the "385834" is that number. COuld be wrong though.
The hit parade keeps on coming.
A large box truck at 60 mph on I-93 S near Quincy, MA.
Somebody is trying to perform a colonoscopy while driving down the highway at 60 mph
Sid Wainer and Sons Danger Close on MA 24 near Taunton, MA.
They should just hitch those two together
This is not the way to cover up the paint job peeling up.
driving my two week old Prius today,across the Pa. Turnpike,I was passed by many other drivers. Having recently joined and reading others post,I set my cruise control at 60 mph. I have never been passed by so many vehicles. Trying to say that his old speeder is listening to the choir. Al A Gettysburg Pa
Welcome to the club, Al! It's much better for the heart!
I-495 Southbound in MA at 60 mph.
JLine Transportation way to close.
This rig stopped tailgating thirty seconds after being phoned in proving it sometimes is worth your while.
I-95 N near Attleboro, MA.
Ford Focus passing by at possibly 80 to 85 MPH and in close.
This was Thursday the 10th. PA Turnpike westbound right before exit 226. Left lane at ~65 MPH and all way too close.
