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.

I don’t know how many times I have been passed by a mcalister tanker at night on the highway with a speeding driver and unable to keep it between the lines. 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 . Report Reply 0 replies · active 342 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down Just Wondering · 342 weeks ago My question is: Which direction was he going? 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? Report Reply 0 replies · active 342 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Guest · 342 weeks ago If you see a someone on the turnpike driving eratic it is your duty (my opinon) to call 911, the life you save my be mine.

But I’m excited with everyone we have and to see how far we can go.”The Celtics answered the call in their first game since Marcus Morris questioned the team’s toughness after they surrendered leads of 28 points to the Clippers and 18 points to the Lakers on their home court.“Good teams have clunkers, but good teams respond to those with the right effort and approach,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.Both teams are tied for the fourth spot in the East with a 36-21 record.ADVERTISEMENT Boston Celtics’ Jayson Tatum goes up for a shot during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019, in Philadelphia.

The Sixers had a chance to tie when Jimmy Butler went to the line for three free throws but he missed two. After a turnover, Embiid lost the ball with under a minute left. Smart then blew past Ben Simmons for a dunk to extend the lead to 108-104 with 24 seconds left. Butler made a driving layup and a free throw to cut it to 108-107. “We understood Philly’s been playing at a high level,” Horford said. “We had disappointing losses at home. I felt like our backs were against the wall, so we all needed to come out and set the tone and we did that.”After trailing for nearly the entire first half, the Sixers opened the third quarter on a 9-0 run to take a 55-52 lead. JJ Redick’s 3-pointer capped the run. Minutes later, Simmons thrilled the crowd by driving around Tatum and throwing down a thunderous right-handed jam. But Tatum answered at the opposite end with a spin move around Embiid and dunk over Simmons.NO TAMPERINGThe NBA said Los Angeles Lakers president Magic Johnson did not break any league tampering rules when he spoke about possibly working with Simmons in the offseason. The investigation was initiated after it was revealed Sunday that Simmons wanted to meet with Johnson to talk about the art of being an elite point guard.
