  1. well here we go like the blind leading the blind.
    see news story out of Northwest Indiana yesterday
    COCOA POWDER BATTERIES SPILL ON HIGHWAY IN NORTHWEST INDIANA YESTERDAY

    HERE'S THE FUNNIEST PART THE FIRST DRIVER PULLED OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD PUT ON HIS FOUR WAYS I WANT TO GET A BOTTLE OF WATER NO PROBLEM HE TOOK THE RIGHT PRECAUTIONS PULL OVER QUICKLY PUT ON YOUR FOUR WAYS... GOOD JOB SIR
    MEANWHILE IN THE INTERIM HERE COMES DMF TRUCKING DOWN THE ROAD NOT PLAYING WITH HIS PHONE BUT REACHES OVER TO GET I BELIEVE A "YEP BOTTLE OF WATER" LOSES CONTROL AND CRASHES INTO THE OTHER TRUCK..
    yes kids that goes to show you you don't have to be on the phone to be driving distracted but how ironic that the whole thing just by simply reaching over could cause that..
    any questions feel free to check out I think it's with channel WTHR either that or just simply Google the story as I put it and you could read the whole joke yourself unbelievable..

    Unless I am mistaken, it is against the law to stop on an Interstate highway except for an emergency. But how many people do you know who have done this and received a ticket?? I do not believe stopping on an Interstate to get a bottle of water is an emergency. We see it everyday, several times a day, people stopping on the shoulder when they just passed a "off ramp" or even a rest area. But remember, the "off ramps" and "on ramps" are part of the Interstate highway. Still against the law to stop on the "ramps".
