This morning all the local tv news outlets are reporting on an overturned FedEx truck on the Illinois side at 270 at 55/70. As soon as I saw the images of this truck I said to myself, "I bet that was one of those tandem trucks." And sure enough, a little while later that was the case. The trailer in the back flipped over.
While driving on interstates as we travel or go from Missouri to Illinois, we often see FedEx trucks with two trailers connected. Rarely do we see other cartage companies using this delivery system and...it too often FedEx trucks are the ones really driving faster than the rest of the traffic. When they pass us, as they are wont to do, it takes forever, the trucks are so long.
