This should not have happened with or without a CB. We all come upon stopped or slowed traffic at least a couple times a week. If you are paying attention to the road ahead of you, you should be fine. If you need a CB to alert you to pay attention to the road ahead of you, find a new career. Often times, there are electronic signs along sides and above highways that warn of situations coming ahead to be cautious of, if drivers must have advanced warning to begin paying attention to the road rather than phone, radio, passenger, pets or whatever they deem more important than their actual job of driving.

Totally agreed. I'm not saying a CB isn't useful. It certainly is, but there's absolutely no excuse for this kind of accident, with or without a CB. And who knows? Maybe he had a CB and he'd forgotten to turn it on or turn the volume up. My prayers go out to those involved...regardless of whose fault it is, this is still tragic.
