      I guess road conditions had nothing to do with it, and the fact that it happened on the Sunday night when Penn Dot has temporary drivers to fill in ( if they even had any on duty ).

      • the trucking do gooder

        Well then Sam, I’m going give you some learning although your supposedly a trucker. DON’T BLAME THE ROAD CONDITIONS! DON’T BLAME PENNDOT! DON’T BLAME GOD! BLAME THE DRIVER FOR NOT STAYING OFF THE ROAD! I drive truck. If the roads are hazardous, I park it. So shouldn’t have this guy. If you work for a company that “makes” you drive then quit them. Plenty of other good companies out there that won’t force you. My company doesn’t, nor will I allow them. Never got fired AND my license is squeaky clean. Bet this guy wishes he didn’t crumble to his dispatcher’s pressure. FOOLS I SAY!!!!!
