    You're exactly right, but these new guys working for the megas are job scared and bullied into hauling in any weather.

    News traveled faster back then, we had this radio invention that drivers used to use to warn others about things like this in front of them.

    If one of my family did that, I would feel the same.

    I bet 2/3rds of trucks do not have a radio in, or on, their truck these days. Maybe 1/2 when they hit a backup. Mine stays on at all times.

    Some of the news reports were showing CRANES being used to lift some of the vehicles off of each other. Not a good sign.
