    This incompetent driver was obviously not paying attention in CDL class when the instructor covered the chapter on center of gravity. This is why I drive truck no more. Way to many idiot cowboy truckers out there. Every rest area you drive by has DOT cops set up in them hassling truck drivers because of goofballs like this.

      More like your CDL license got revoked for a violation, you still drive a car even though others drive the wrong way, flip over, hit pedestrians or drive into those itty bitty buildings.

        Absolutely incorrect. I hold a license that is as clean and pure as the wind driven snow. That’s right, never a ticket, accident, or DUI. If I stayed driving truck any longer, one of these boneheads would have ruined that for me, for sure.

    According to Mossy Peter, this truck driver was going the right way. Which is probably true because we see so many of them like this. Collateral PennDOT truck for extra points…

      Yeah. Going too fast, laying your truck on its side, spilling garbage all over and closing a thoroughfare is much better. Show of hands: Who all think Mossy Peters good buddy here is going the right way?

        I’m going to ask you a serious question. Do you think the driver that dumped all that garbage is competent and professional? No ‘at least he wasn’t going the wrong way’ BS. I want to hear from you what you think about this guy and the two boneheads that plowed into PennDOT trucks. What defense, reason, or excuse do you have for their actions? Let’s hear it. I’ve only got one account, shite for brains, unlike some people. Mopar banned? You wish.

        Well dumb arse (AKA Mossy Peter), looks like Mopar is alive and well – check out the 3D gun article. Once again, you’re full of dung of have no idea what you’re talking about.

      Hey Stunad, I only stated that he was going the right way, I never ever said that he was competent, But at least he didn’t drive off the parking lot into one of those itty bitty buildings.

      • jimbrony

        Same here, SFB. I never once claimed that any car, light truck, or motorcycle was beyond reproach. I don’t defend or excuse any of their incompetence or poor judgement. You on the other hand always come to the defense of the reckless cowboys that pose as truck drivers these days and try to legitimize their inexcusable behaviors.

        Yeah Right
        I approve of wreckless driving !
        Bashing truckers is a big deal in NEPA, just look at all the Ambulance chasers billboard advertising, then wonder why the cost of insurance is out of reach.
        So keep on the Bash A Trucker bandwagon and keep paying higher premiums, the lawyers love it.
        That’s why they advertise more than McDonalds.
