    Bumper to bumper especially heading back to Indiana around rush hour, 3 lanes of trucks all piled up running together.

    I ran that lane 3-5 times a week. Gotta be on your game because when you leave a gap you have trucks nosing in and than you have to drop back more.

    Zero distractions and total A game for an hour driving through there to survive. .

    Rip driver.

    The construction on the Tristate makes things even more complicated. The lanes shift frequently from the Kennedy/O’Hare junction (I-90/I-190) down to I-80 junction.

    Speed limit is like 45mph in those areas but everyone is going 70 anyway.

    This morning there was another accident involving semi almost at same spot.
