    The Gentleman that was Driving the first Semi is a very cautious driver. Due to holding water on the Interstate the truck hydroplaned. Goes to show that even the safest driver can have an accident thats why they are called what they are ACCIDENTS. (Could happen to a car as well not just trucks.) As for the comment about truckers on separate highways I am not a trucker but some Cars or Smaller trucks think that these Semi's can stop on a dime Not. Truckers have to get to their jobs too. Give em a break.

    According to me i feel that their should be separate highway made for only trucks where other vehicle could not travel or their should be specific time appointed at which only heavy duty as well as (http://www.supersemis.com/)semi trucks will move on the road this will help to reduce the accident which take place frequently.

    gettin....fyi the interstate system was built 1)to create jobs post war, 2) for the military defence system, thus limited access. hence again you think you own the road rotflmao

    Most folks that complain about truck drivers aren't capable of driving their own cars, but they try anyway.

    wilma not all truckers should be truckers. then again not all car drivers should be allowed to drive a car. maybe people that want to judge the truck drivers on how they drive, should find out first hand on how much of a hassle it is with cars that think the roads are their speed rally and have full rights to do what they please. remember some of these truckers have 80000 pounds under their control and no matter how great the brakes are, it takes alot to stop this 80000 pounds 80000 pounds is 40 TONS your car with you in it is what about 3000 pounds or 1.5 tons so consider that the next time you want to speed up and slid right infront of a truck just so you can see farther while your talking on the cell phone fyi just because a semi as 5 axles with 4 of them having 2 extra tires and brake drums bigger then a steering wheel of a car doesnt mean it can stop as fast as a car even when the trailer is empty so i say again before complaining about it try somebodys elses shoes once

    It dont matter, it has been proven that cars vs truck accidents cars take the most to be at fault, also proven cars have more violations(speeding, seatbelt, reckless driving) do I need to go on? trucks dont need a 3 day shut down, interstates were made for trucks to haul on NOT CARS!!!! thats why trucks cant take all the state routes, so cars get off your rears and learn how to drive around a big truck before you start accusing trucks of doing something wrong. oh yea, statistics have shown TRUCKS are the SAFEST drivers!!!!

    Without our truck drivers, our lives would stop because most would not have a clue or refuse to go back to living off the land, i.e., growing your own vegetables, farm animals for meat, no fuel for vehicles, sewing your own clothes, making your own luxuries, etc. They travel in brutal weather, leave their families for weeks at a time, have to meet deadlines, etc. I have had several truck drivers be a life saver for me on the road. Thank you to each and every one. Yes, there are bad apples, but there are bad apples in every profession.

    With the one exception of Obama getting elected, there is no such thing as an "accident."

    truckers, do your 3 day shut down.obvious here you think you own the road. while most are courteous, more than a few times, been cut off, etc. goes both ways. c-ya out there

    tony haan,You're wrong! Trucks don't come limited. A dealer can set the road speed at whatever the customer requests.
