    Yes thats right lets take all the trucks off the road. That way when you go to the gas station or to the stores thier will be nothing to buy. Trucks bring everything to us. Its not the trucks its the four wheelers.

    Pretty much no excuse when a semi trailer goes prospectin' for trouble. This tech was worked out long ago.

    They really need to require common knowledge about trucks on class D licenses testing. Im sick of hearing non professional drivers complain about how unsafe truckers are. This isn't a car. They dont have a clue what we go through every day. We drive more miles in a year than most do in 6 years.

    Donald Karol of the NTSB...Ray LaHood of NHTSA does not care about the death and loss of lives by loose runaway trailer. What if this trailer hit a School Bus...would we get action? In Florida Kim Montez of the Florida State Highway Patrol is hiding the accident report of a Women who lost her life in Orlando in August when a Homemade Trailer destroyed her life...www.youtube.com/watch?v=maSe9gOrCXA

    Please go to www.dangeroustrailers.org and take note that if big tractor trailers can't keep their trailers attached to the truck...how do you expect all the small utility trailers that people tow to stay connected...

      DOT does not do that anymore.... If you look closely,on then white patrol cars with blue stripes no longer has the DOT decal on the sides of the patrol cars... The decal of the Florida Highway Patrol are now on these patrol cars! ;-)

        actually DOT does do that, just under FHP. They still have the same job, just under a different office.
