    Yes. My last load before I quit was going there. Literally 0 spots to drop the trailer and the guard wanted to get pissy and said something along the lines of “I don’t care not my job to find you a spot” so I dropped it where I was at, by the guard shack.

    You get used to it fairly quickly - and ‘set up’ the turn in advance, basically just take the entire intersection as needed.

    Even leaving the road I live on, it’s wrong side to wrong side on a T intersection right hand turn to clear the ditch and stop sign.

    If traffic is busy, you learn to direct traffic from the cab, and nudge your way through situations until the other motorists “get with the program “.

    A lot easier with a pilot car, and the reason I think all drivers should run a CB.

    I cant help but wonder if Swift bothered to use his mirrors.
    He should have seen it the first time.

    My daughter’s first curse words were “effing arse whole.” That’s what I mumbled under my breath all the time. In her car seat with pigtails, I was like, aw! :love7:

    You guys do know that most tow truck drivers are former Swift drivers, how else you think they learned all the towing methods?

    Rather amazing to me the Tow Truck driver decided to document their clients faux paux from start to finish, publish it for the masses, and even proudly advertising their company info on the video.

    Wonder the back story, must be a story behind it. Even a dim bulb must realize posting negative information about your client is a quick way to get blacklisted. Pulling down your clients pants in front of a crowd is pretty I'll advised. Maybe he lost the account already.

    Wow.

    16,000 lb load.
    No reason whatsoever to have tandems all the way back.
    Your just asking for trouble.
    They should be only that far back when they have to be.

    He'll be a trainer next week.
