    Im wondering what you guys/gals see daily?I know I see some pretty crazy stuff on any given day.
    Yesterday I witnessed a case loader burning on the side of 65 in Alabama.No fire units yet on scene.
    Theres always a crazy wreck in Atlanta,but I need a spot to post,and figured this would be a good place
    to share daily events.
    There was a big fire in Birmingham,but I didn't get that far up too see it,lots of smoke!!
    Stay safe out there,and let us know what went on during your drive time today.

    I see . . . DUMB PEOPLE . . .

    They don't even know they're dumb.

    I saw a box truck tipped over in the right lane in the Tijeras canyon yesterday - couldn't warn anybody with their radio off - couldn't stop either. Round a blind curve. People just won't slow down and put their stupid cell phones away.

    I saw a big rig jackknifed in the ditch at about mm 3 NB I85 in SC this morning. The lack of rescue vehicles and only the right lane closed hopefully meant the driver was ok, albeit most likely unemployed.

    I saw a guy try to hang a u - turn on rt 7 about 15 miles into VT from NY. It's a 4 lane highway. Well his tractor got into the ditch (even if you were gonna do something stupid like that not sure why you wouldn't stop before getting into the ditch) trailer was blocking 3 out of 4 lanes. Trying to upload pic not sure if it worked

    When was the fire in Bham? I went around the 459 today about 1130 and it was just the typical idiots that you find there.

    I saw a jackwagon driving a Knight truck SB on I-75 in Gainesville FL during rush hour. Moron was doing 60 in the middle lane and was drifting back and forth. After the JB Hunt truck in front of me went around him (I know, some combo huh?) and I followed, said jackwagon drifts over into my lane. I give him a solid blast of the horn and as I draw even with him, he gives me a WTF look! So I promptly showed him how pleased I was with his considerable skills......


    Wonder if he relayed the message to whoever was on the other end of the phone stuck to his ear.....
