Having been in the commercial trucking space for years. Most of the regulations that commercial drivers have to adhere to should also apply to normal peasant driving.Maybe actual laws for towing. They could have easily killed themselves and everyone around them.
the dump trucks at the mine were highway legal load 142,000#, we loaded them to 198,000#, cuz 100% off road, so not illegal
oh i have something for this thread now
driving home from chicago yesterday i roll up on some traffic on the turnpike in indiana which eventually slowed to a stop. supposedly an rv bumped trailers with a semi and then all hell broke loose. one semi went across the highway to the westbound lanes and took out another semi or two. westbound was completely blocked and they ended up closing the highway. eastbound they made us sit there for an hour while seemingly doing nothing; i was 3 or 4 vehicles back when they stopped us
first piece of carnage:
idk what was goin on over here but one of those semi drivers kicked the same tar while apparently telling the same story to 11ty people
after an hour-ish and me getting out of the car a few times (and really freaking out the grandparents smoking some dank weed behind me every time) they let the eastbound lanes start movin (right as i finally conceded that i was going to piss my pants and started disrobing so i could try to pee in a water bottle). anyways i think this will buff out.
carnage on the other side of the highway, white truck was blocking all lanes. guessing green truck from the beginning ended up like that from trying to dodge all the madness.
