    No they just like to pick on trucks . Its to bad when they will have no more freight to buy after they ban all the trucks...

    And you think the Poobahs in our Civil Positions of leadership have time for that.

    We don't have time for that. For every jackknife I am assured there are dozens of idiots reaching into their yetis...

    Can't really says I blame them.

    Sort of the same concept on the west when trucks ignore chains. And cause a mess.

    There's always idiots with balls.

    Maybe the other 427 crashes were cars.

    I think truck drivers should observe the fantasy these governors have and not deliver. Then the public outcry of why their toilet paper wasnt delivered might show these idiots why you say no to what keeps you comfy.

    yeah, i hesitated for a minute before posting this...when cars and pick up trucks and SUV's crash, it "generally" is messy, but quicker to clean up. the idea of the travel ban for trucks is the time needed for recovery and opening of the road(s) and the continued snow plowing/salting.

    it's just quicker to clean up from the other morons on the roads, then proceed with plowing/salting operations. we have all seen either in person, or on tv, or some internet site, the time involved in a big truck wreck(s).

    in the end, haven't many of us said,to others here, "no load is worth a wreck"? and the "park it"..???

    or other things of that nature, for our own safety????
