    I have computer to shift gears and a computer to tell me when I can safely drive. I got computers to watch my following distance and computers to apply the brakes to avoid rear end accident. I'm read for the computers to drive.

    It’s actually USPS, not UPS.

    Must be in the wee hours of the morning, cause I've yet to see one.

    That's a very busy stretch too, love to see one go down there during the day time lol.

    Not happening Dave. It has sensors which make it impervious to break downs, blowouts, or any failure. You just keep it full of fuel and trucking utopia happens.
