    I wouldn't want to be behind that when the chains let go.

    Yeah I wouldn't have slowed down to get a shot at the other side of the trailer. I would have floored it to get past that guy asap.

    Before you hang blame on the driver let me tell you one thing. Ground never has and never will set any performance records when it comes to trailer maintenance.

    You wouldn't have flagged the driver down?

    Would have tried from in front of them while on the phone with police. No way I'd put myself at that much risk, being behind or beside that guy.

    That poor slug behind the wheel who wouldn't have been hired by anyone else is probably getting 20 cents a mile , maybe even less

    Oh ok. I knew that didn't sound like you to just drive off, thinking it wasn't your problem. :)

    You're surprised that I don't care about others?

    LOL. Not at all. I just know you would do the right thing to possibly save some lives. :).

    It's almost impossible for a pintle hook to let go if it's properly hooked-up. This clown probably didn't secure the pintle. Those chains aren't going to last very long.

    Once hooked-up (correctly), the pintle isn't going to allow the dolly tongue to pop out.

    Ground. What an effing joke.

    Probably 'sub-contracted' at about $7 an hour.

    They don't run doubles in Somalia, where the driver is used to hooking-up donkeys, not trailers. $7 per hour, which is some big money if you take some pills and can drive 24 hours straight.
