    …even though the car driver was arrested for DUI and his two passengers died. He must’ve been flying to have caused this much damage. But the trucker isn’t off the hook at this point. Happened in the Santa Fe Springs area of L.A.

    The truck driver should have forced himself to vomit inside the truck and say he pulled over because he started to vomit.
    That would be a medical emergency.
    Mechanical breakdown or medical emergency are the only two legal reason a truck driver can legally pull over. I guess a wreck is a reason also.

    If you park on the side of the road for a non emergency reason, you are retarded. Full blown, back woods taken up the ### retardation. If some dip #### hits you, you will spit roasted, flipped over, pissed on and grilled. I rig and the side of road without an emergency reason will get hammered every way from Sunday if there is an accident. I know I will get called out, but hey, okay. You will lose.

    Pulling over for the skitters is fine I suppose as long as it's safe. But, go to a pet food plant. If you have the aroma of uncontrolled crap, you will be the best smelling individual in that horror show.

    I read recently that a family was killed on going through the stretch of I-15 through Arizona because a truck driver had pulled over and then pulled out into traffic. You have to be window licking, ### hammering stupid to think it is safe to pull a rig to the shoulder on that dangerous road. Pure retardation
