Re: The Danger That Lurks - Real World Traffic Case Studies

Hi All:


A Mini School Bus on I-84 West of Hartford, CT. The driver could have easily passed or backed off.

Re: The Danger That Lurks - Real World Traffic Case Studies

Hi All:

65 + and slowing for something ahead on I-495 South nearing Bolton, MA. This is the fifth time for HARTT Transportation.


Driver was called in and hopefully taken care of accordingly.

Re: The Danger That Lurks - Real World Traffic Case Studies

Hi All:

Way to close to a school bus with children on board. This was at 60 mph on in Northwest New Jersey. The rig driver was even closer at one point.

Re: The Danger That Lurks - Real World Traffic Case Studies

Hi All:

Can 80,000 pounds "fit" in the back of a "Fit"?


I-78 East in PA and slowing through 60 from 70 + mph on the downgrade. The same driver was tailgating an Altima Hybrid minutes prior.

Re: The Danger That Lurks - Real World Traffic Case Studies

If that's anywhere near Allentown, 78 is a real pain in the arse in that area.

Re: The Danger That Lurks - Real World Traffic Case Studies

Hi All:

You have got to just love this one?

A slow down through 40 mph...

West Springfield Massachusetts Auto Parts
413-781-0252
Established in 1956


And trying to be sued right out from underneath their business in 2012

If you know them, “give em a call”

And of course everybody else in the lane driving just as ridiculous.
