    I don’t see triangles out? Another guy taking a break on the shoulder, possibly?

    Going to be a lot more of this if the feds get their way with the speed limiter deal. Maybe they need to speed limit the 4 wheelers.

    If the triangles were out then the car either crushed them or sent them flying across the roadway. But IIRC we have 10 minutes before we are required to deploy triangles.

    If someone can't see the 8'6 x 13'6 wall in front of them, how the #### is it reasonable to expect them to see a trio of 12" tall triangles?
