Pamela C.'s Bio

Ancient OTR Refrigerated Driver. I am looking to get refresher training but want to get into Tanker runs. Maybe transfer or dry bulk. I just miss driving so much, and the whole reason I got out of trucking in the first place is what's keeping me back now. I hope it is different, its been 10 years. I also would like to become part of this forum and Yes I am a Gal. That seems to freak some folks out but, I gotta make a living too. Why not with something I am good at and that I love right?

Tractor trailer 'mowed cars down' in 9-vehicle crash

"Ever message board from the 24-split to there was warning about this," she said. "We had a Highway Patrolman there in the taper with flashing lights on."

We truckers have all seen how this happens. Having the police cars at the construction zone where the lanes are being squeezed into one is not where the fatal accidents occur most. That is where the simple fender benders happen because of cars cutting in line. The dangerous part is at the back of the line when you first see all the slowing and stopped vehicles. You come in at limit speeds and still have to get heavy on the brake. Sometimes your first glance is around a curve or over a hill. That is where the police car needs to be. And if that "collecting spot" is going backwards down the interstate, the police car needs to be on the shoulder backing up to stay with it. This way, we could get some warning to slow down even more. Thank God I keep my CB on to get early warnings to help avoid surprises like these.

I know the media just wants too blame the trucks for all the problems on the roads. But unless you stop buying products and start making and growing you own, you're gonna have to have the trucks.

But I still can't help but wonder if posting to facebook or some other such **** didn't contribute to the accident.

My condolences to all the families and victims of the accident.
