Honestly... i totally agree with Laura. Helicopter wife. We see them from time to time and it really makes the husband look bad.

We do know what evidence you have... the DOT plow driver wrote a statement. The fire department got its first call ten min before the accident. The state police report... the NWS ... we heard it all before. And again as i posted before... there were multiple reported accidents and half the state's highway was shut down 10 hours before. I posted the weather reports and warnings that were up 3 hours before the accident. I was there. You are never going to convince me that he was not at fault.

Plus, there is no way in hell that meat load was safe. That accident for the cranes, tow trucks, services probably cost $300,000 and the load was probably another $200,000.

Sharon, we are all current drivers who donate our time to try to help out new drivers to get into the trucking industry. We praise caution and responsibility. What you are demonstarting is the exact opposite of what we preach here.

If you are both drivers, why are you facing financial ruin? Get a job. Support your man. If you are still sick and in need of health insurance, he was doubky irresponsible jeopardizing his livelihood just to get something to eat. There was a good restuarant in Grand Island. He didnt need to head to York for that.

Call your bill collectors, make pay arrangements. Apply everywhere. Get an online job since you like to spend your time compiling evidence. Go compile something to bring in money.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Also, Karen, pardon, I mean Sharon. No need to report it to the "mods"...we can see it and many, like myself, are commenting on your post. If you look carefully, like one would when checking the weather when route planning, you'll notice the title "moderator" under our names that are indeed moderators. It's somewhat aking to "getting the manager".

23 pages, 53, pages 123 pages it does not matter. I’ve encountered black ice several times driving in the Chicagoland/ NWI area. As have an infinite amount of other drivers. It’s either shut it down or use extreme caution. Nobody will here will advise your husband to do anything other than own up to his mistake.

Nothing is going to change your husband having this preventable rollover on his record. Gonna have to own up to it. Not deflect blame with baloney. Also keep in mind it’s slow everywhere right now.

Good gawd I had to make an account for this. There’s nothing to say that hasn’t been said already but yes, I concur
