    I would not abandon the truck, especially if it is a roadway hazard. I carry winter wear, reflective vests and a flagperson's Stop/Slow handheld sign. I would:

    - Turn off the headlights
    - Turn on the four-ways
    - Leave the marker lights on if the motor is operable
    - Put out the triangles, well behind the truck
    - Leave the truck in case it is hit by another truck
    - Walk up the highway in my reflective safety gear
    - Use my sign to warn approaching traffic there is a hazard ahead
    - Stay well out of the way of speeding trucks that may be sliding off the road when they try to slow down

    I'm sometimes amazed that drivers do not carry proper winter clothing. Due to the nature of the hazardous material that I pull I am not in a position to abandon my truck. I will not be found in the coffee shop in Hope while Jamie Davis tries to figure out what to do with the truck I abandoned.

    The ones leaving their trucks just might be new Canadians that can't produce a valid class 1 licence. Just a guess,I don't live down there. Why else would someone abandon their truck?

    Its funny more drivers haven't figured this one out. Five years ago I was running back and fourth to Edmonton for one of those guaranteed over night outfits. They had a no canyon policy, when I arrived at the Edmonton terminal one morning they new I had taken the canyon because the coke had been closed all night. I told the terminal manager he could can me or let me do my job as I saw fit. I worked there a few more months before I quit. Most times if its snowing on the coke, its raining in the canyon.
