This week the 401 has been closed three times due to tractor trailer rollovers. And I watch in wonder and awe as I see jalopy-condition dump trucks and garbage trucks weave in and out of traffic going at least 130 kph.
This report was released in the USA yesterday:
This is over 40,000 wrecks involving tractor trailers a year. Some of the types of accidents in decreasing order of frequency were leaving the lane/running off the road, side swipes, roll over's, and head on collisions, among other types.It is only a matter of time until we have another major crash that kills a dozen or more people.
I know that George Carlin said that there are only two types of drivers - those going slower than you (effin idiots) and those going faster (effin maniacs).
But large trucks need to have a governor on their engines that limit their speed to the speed limit.
