    that time of the late afternoon?

    must have been texting or watching a dvd.

    i always find it hard to believe to lay it over on a straight road.

    When I went by the backup was 4 miles long and growing rapidly. I wondered how long the delay was going to be as it looked really bad.

    in my state, the clean up is billed to the trucking company. this includes,. police, fire, rescue (ambulance in some areas), even the coffee truck for the clean up and emergency crews.

    also, including, any road repairs, bridge repairs, repaving, hauling away that debris.

    maybe what should be done, is start to allow other trucking companies, to sue the offender, for time lost, refused loads as in reefer loads, tolls, wages if by the hour, detention for those that are paid by the mile.

    all that would be needed, is the proof of being there, via ELD, or satellite location.

    let's see then if these offending companies continue to hire morons and how long they stay in business.

    Fatigue/tunnel vision? It can happen on that part of I-80. Between Council Bluffs and Des Moines it feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere (because you literally are).
