    Ouch, check out that picture. I'm thinking the Fedex guy may have dozed off.

    This is a road I travel a lot. It's true what some of the comments say about Mass not having many rest areas. I hear truckers complaining of that all the time.

    Yep- Fedex dozed off, tractor eased over to the right. But look at the picture of the drop frame, and think about the force needed to do that amount of damage. Then look at the Yellow incident, and think about what that driver DIDN'T do.

    Trailers are actually very fragile in the reality of it, they're only thin aluminium and although strong for what they do the size and weight of the trucks means it takes very little to actually do that kind of damage.

    Over9 must have a turned up feeder. Fedex Ground drivers are always blowing my doors off.

    We were discussing that at work last night, must be like that everywhere. Amazing how fast Fedex goes pulling a set.

    I go up and down 290 all the time. Wonder if he's blown by me before? (And I wonder if he will again?).

    fedex drivers pulling doubles must be getting mileage pay to drive the way they do . . . . just what I think anyway:wink2:

    Yes, all contractors. Although, most are just drivers for an IC but still get hammered to go as fast as their shiney wheels will go.

    Had a UPSF driver with a set go by on I-294 in a construction (45mph) area at 75mph the other day. Guess we had some hot freight. Wouldn`t want that ticket though.

    Fedex Ground uses airride drop frames with crank landing gears and supersingle dollies. American Freightways drivers would sometimes get on the UPS company channel and chat awhile before they got out of cb range. After Fedex bought them out and became Fedex Freight their drivers won't talk to Busterbrown drivers as they blow by.
