    What’s with reflective triangles in this country?
    I think in the last five years I can count on the fingers of one hand how many times I’ve seen triangles placed properly behind a disabled vehicle. Some people don’t even know how to set them up so they don’t fall over.

    The best ones are when they set them up so they're pointed inward towards the shoulder and the truck.

    I always carried a box of extra ones

    I’d set a couple out if I had to sleep on a ramp so I could claim I was broke down if the revenue collection officers hassled me .

    Yes I cringe daily at this, but guess what many don't even use them. Theres a long list of stuff not being done by these professionals. Today I complimented two truck drivers for using their blinkers and giving me space when passing, its that rare.

    All I can say is I’m glad they don’t give those idiots fuzee’s anymore. That could be bad.
