    Good thing he was pulling double... That second trailer made a nice anchor to keep him from falling the rest of the way down.

    Yep, no choice at all, jump. I would much that sudden stop kill me than a barbeque.

    We passed a different wrong way driver last night going eastbound in the westbound lanes just east of OKC. But the one we passed was later at night so it wasn’t the same car. 911 said they had already received multiple calls about it when I called them.

    Broken bones at least heal somewhat normally just hurt a little when the weather changes.

    We’ve had issues with wrong way drivers in Massachusetts in recent years and the majority of them were either DUI/DWI or DWT or elderly people who should’ve had their licenses pulled a long time ago.
     
    Bud A. and lovesthedrive Thank this.
