    They started bringing them up in ex oilfield tank trailers within the last month. Just the weekend before the big storm they had a garbled 9-1-1 call come in from the inside of one. I’m not sure if they ever located it. They have cctv video of what they suspect is it driving through one of the truck stops at I-35 and 1604 south of San Antonio.

    Riding in a van or reefer is bad enough but a tank? But like they say in DC there isn’t a problem at the southern border the last few months.

    Kind of looks like the overloaded Ford did; they had a stop sign, the gravel truck did not.

    i usually try to drive in a way that's forgiving if other cars are to make mistakes. like run a stop sign ill try to time it so they go in front or behind me if they do so. or try reduce my time driving next to other cars so reduces chances of being side swiped, etc.
