    I watched it several times. I didn't see lights on that trailer. You could see the trailer fine. I think it was just last moment that the guy realized it was just sitting there.

    In their infinite wisdom, the British Columbia authorities decided to put in a car pool lane (almost unused) for various environmental reasons instead of the safety related breakdown lane.

    If I saw a trailer in a lane of travel with no brake lights or flashers then I would presume that it was moving, not sitting still.

    Cement truck was daydreaming. Speed limit is low on that bridge and it’s foggy about 2 days or more a week . If pick up wasn’t broken it could just as easy be a slow super b crawling through there he was distracted.
