    Sad part is we just need the idiots off the road. Probably do better to keep cars off the interstates and let us go.

    They shut the road down anymore to cover their ##### from lawsuits. Nothing more nothing less.

    The last few pile ups that I have seen, it was ALL trucks. Not a passenger car or pickup in the pile.

    Somebody posted on Facebook "good luck getting the non English speaking flip floppers to abide by this".

    I thought that was funny.. :laughing6:

    That Buffalo corridor has got to be a mess with all those third world freaks trying to get around.

    Most I see have some car doing something stupid to start the chain of events. Doesn't always mean they get caught in the mess but they caused it.

    I found Upstate NY got plenty snow at times but they plows seemed to keep up,,,never issues. PA had to work at as the “snow plow” there seemed to be shy of the weather.
    Never had to stop due to snow,,just fortunate to always have good weight on.

    You USED to be able to say that about almost all of the crashes, but with some of these ####heads out here now, that is no longer the case. Just yesterday, I had a dude tailgate me so close coming down a grade just East of the TA at Ft Bridger, WY that if I had barely touched the brakes he would ate the back of my trailer. He finally passed me near the bottom, then on the way uphill, I passed him, since I am fairly light. He caught up with me and passed me just before the exit to the TA, and exited from the left lane, almost hitting the dirt patch between the offramp and the right lane. As I passed him, he was leaning out the window yelling and flipping me off. He made the turn toward the fuel islands without stopping, almost hitting another truck that was coming from the other side of 84.... and there was not a single car involved in that one. I see stupid #### like this almost every day. Just dumb,impatient folks that have NO idea what is going on further ahead of them than about 50 feet. Drivers like this is why I DESPISE going anywhere near Chatanooga. The design of I-24 around that area has a way of concentrating stupidity.
