I got a different angle

15 mph curve ahead... so he should have been doing 10mph in the truck... with hazards on if he felt.unsafe, possibly creeping at 5mph if necessary. other drivers wont know if you have transmissions or mechanical.problems.

That was some excellent research and the picture IS worth a thousand words (or a dozen excuses).

Few weeks back I was headed from delivering my load in Kearney Missouri I was headed to the pilot on I-35 and the road I was on was under construction heading west so I followed the detour which was a very narrow two lane road through the rural part of Kearney. I had a turn exactly like this. Trees were blocking my sight and it was a 15 mile an hour turn. I literally crept around the corner because I knew I would have to get into the oncoming Lane to keep from having my trailer go into the ditch. Sure enough here came a car so I stopped and let it pass. Then went wide and I'm telling you it was tight as hell. But I made it

The road test I took to get my own truck had numerous spots to trip you up.

There is one spot that if you don’t do it correctly you will take out a stop light. From what I hear they have an open ZpO with the town to replace it when trainers rip it down. When I made it around, the training officer said congratulations, this is where most road tests end.

Great work maneuvering that situation Junkyard. About a month ago I had a backhaul near Trimble MO (northwest of Kearney off US 169) and the detour it sent us on was some real sketchy backroads. It ended up sending me all the way over to i29 to st Joseph to get to 35. A couple of the curves were super tight but atleast I could see if anyone was coming.

That pilot in Kearney always confuses me if you get off the NB ramp. They Make you swing all the way over to the right so you're separated from the rest of traffic your direction by the bridge pillars. Also curious about the fine I'd you attempt to turn left without using the light, but I DO NOT want to find out the hard way.
