    Hi All:

    Turns out this guy was tailgating one of his fellow drivers from the same company.

    Hi All:

    This was taken on I-95 NB near New Haven CT at about 60 mph. Imagine the chaos this could produce?

    I've seen worse, but it looks like they're trying to keep the front guy from getting a ticket for an improper load. Tank removal is a wacky business and it looks like the tank they have is an in-between size that was a little longer than the owner said.

    It's the sort of work where sometimes what people forget to tell you puts you in a position where you have to figure out which rule to break. In Illinois, for example, you have to schedule a time certain a couple of weeks ahead with the state inspector and they can write you up and take you to a hearing if you don't get it done then. You end up making do with the equipment on hand instead of arranging for what you'd have had if you'd known the truth.

    Hi All:

    A multiple mile backup occurred on I-95 NB in Cranston, RI this afternoon where a CR-V was seen completely destroyed with its roof entirely stripped away. There may have been another vehicle involved.

    It was raining and surely to close tailgating was involved.

    A tractor trailer rig consisting of a sleeper cap and a 53’ trailer was seen piled into the left median divider.

    Jesse saw multiple state troopers amongst the carnage with their heads bowed meaning the possibility of a number of fatalities.

    Hi All:

    Mostly Japanese and European/Russian by the looks of it but some pretty horrendous accident regardless.
