    I find it interesting that back in the day we relied on the am radio or the local news in whatever area we were in for the weather.
    Now we've got doppler radar, long range forecasts, all kinds of weather apps and even roadbed temperature sensors but folks still gotta be killed rather than slow down...

    Sigh and still the area feels that salt and sand trucks arent worth the effort.
    Condolences for those whom perished.

    Txdot I was out spraying the roads with deicer on Tuesday afternoon I personally seen them driving by spraying the highways down just these idiots in that area are too stupid to know how to drive they can’t drive on a good sunny dry day much less an icy day

    Don't worry. There are plenty of truck hating lawyers in DFW.

    I rolled through there around 10:00 pm last night and it was already starting to get bad. I was driving at a reduced speed due to the weather and there was drivers and 4 wheelers flying through there and through the construction zones like it was a nice sunny day.
