You're driving down the interstate and look in the rear view mirror to see a giant two story tractor trailer cab bearing down on you. Another one is on your right side and a third is in front. Such is life on the highways these days, sharing the road with way over-sized trucks. I say this a lot, I admit, but since January there have been so many truck incidents/crashes/blow overs that it pays to give them lots of room.
They are much too big and their height and length makes it much easier to blow over in a high wind or sudden wind shift. Today was another one of these and it shouldn't be a surprise that these big trucks have this happen.
You just don't want to be right next to these guys or just in front because they can't always stop quickly or behind them for that matter. This was on I-70 east of Kansas City and it appears the driver is ok. Good for that, but what about the next truck? Too big too fast too overloaded.
And as if on cue, here is a video made by IDOT Secretary Ann Schneider advising us to use caution around the big trucks.
