On my way to get my trailer washed out and saw a roll over on 435 South on The Winner Road exit. CFI truck, old road and the ramps are 35 mph or less. Be careful and pay attention drivers.

I hope everyone was OK. It wasn't me. I'm the slow poke on the ramps that four wheelers hate.

Big Scott assuring us:

Never a doubt.

I’d like to believe we all exercise the same level of caution and prudence as you just described Big Scott.

Fair weather rollovers on exit and entrance ramps are almost always a result of way too much speed.

I don't mind slowing down and ****ing off the fourwheelers but I hate when a big truck tries to push me around a corner or off ramp.

I'm currently hooked to a load of enzymes for ethanol, it's pretty brutal stuff (sloshes really bad) and it seems like every off ramp or curve at the bottom of a hill I have someone riding my bumper.

I also slow below the posted speed on ramps...in CDL class they stressed the posted speed is for cars...not trucks. There are curves on the interstates that makes me feel the truck leaning. I have a lot of respect for you tanker drivers...makes me wonder why I tested for the endorsement? Maybe down the line, but wouldn't be Keen on pulling one at this stage.
