    The dude in the dump had the spreader going full blast trying to spread sand so he could stop. guess it didn't work.

    i cant believe that the person in the miata didnt even try to move. if i saw a truck that size coming up behind me backwards i would at least try and do something.

    I had to deal with this kind of stupidity for the last 10 years.

    We would do the best we could to provide the best driving conditions possible, the public (and sometimes my own plow drivers) would ignore conditions and drive like the road was clean and dry.

    Inevitably, the result was ugly!

    i was in a similar position today. i was doin about 20 or so gettin off the freeway in a driving blizzard in nh. the plow drivers had just made a pass straight down the freeway, that left a birm of snow in front of the exit. saw it after i hit it, spun me around. and i made good friends with mr guardrail. not too bad, just a tap. i was in my little 4cyl car, whish i was driving the truck i was going to go look at!

    and i dont think anyone was in the miata that got creamed by the spreader
