    I'm not sure. It was caused by wind. The nap time was in reference to the truck taking a nap. Kinda like saying I'll stop here for my 30 minute break. ImageUploadedByBrownCafe1437126069.612365.jpg

    That trailer had to be empty, when you look at the fulcrum point and consider how much of it is over center.

    I noticed at the bottom of the article that this happened in 2011.

    That was back in 2011...that bridge is horrible though, only one lane each direction, no shoulder, and always windy. First time I went over it I was pulling a 53' full of empty Canon print cartridges. I enjoyed it so much I took 95 north to the DC Beltway during rush hour on the way back to avoid it!

    Pretty sure the Management Manual lists wind as chargeable. Driver failed to control the weather.

    Maybe this feeder driver was napping. He was pulled over on the side of the interstate when another truck clipped the corner. ImageUploadedByBrownCafe1437187157.672558.jpg

    Mirrors and guages every 5-8 seconds.

    ...yet people here give me a hard time when I criticize feeder drivers regardless of employer who pull over on the side of the highway rather than at an approved rest area/truck stop...

    we had a driver get blown over and he was charged with an accident. they said he was going too fast for conditions. now when there is a wind advisory he calls out. they don't like that either. you cant win with these people.

    LOL. He should have been facing his work also. Was he properly hydrated?

    govols019 You smell that?


    No, people give you a hard time because you have a pathological need to comment on things you have no knowledge of.

    Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows just how unsafe it is to pull over on the side of the interstate, especially with an 18 wheeler.

    I especially love the idiots who insist upon pulling an 18 wheeler on to the wrong side of the street while making a delivery and then forcing their way back in to traffic when they are done. Morons.
