I think they should give them a couple years of probation and make them put tracking devices on all McAlisters semi-tractor trailers and monitor his speed and fine him accordingly. It’s not like he is carrying milk. Report Reply +6 Vote up Vote down Mike · 342 weeks ago You’re right, but I see how you cut them off so you can make the ramp ahead of them so that god forbid you won’t have to wait for them to build speed once they get on 160 headed to town.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 342 weeks ago +8 Vote up Vote down Guest 2 · 342 weeks ago I think it is alot easier to find fault than it is to find the good . Not all truckdrivers are bad and for sure not all of McAlister drivers are bad. It was a bad deal for everyone involved and no doubt the driver is rethinking a few actions as all of us would be. The main thing is no one was hurt .. If you feel the trucks should be monitored …. why not all drivers ?? I am sure every driver has made errors and it not for the grace of god ….. I for one know that if not for truckdrivers I would not have milk , groceries , gas, and all the many things I take for granted .

And If he was coming off the turnpike, how did he end up like that? Or Coming from town why did he turn so early? I drove by and couldn’t figure out how the truck got to that spot?
