News: "We ride because we see long lines of cars and trucks, creeping along toward another day, a crummy one just like yesterday. We ride by, glance into those cars and trucks and can't imagine being one of THEM, when we could be, we ARE, one of us." - Maynard Hershon, Citybike, 9/05

Yep, I remember seeing that on the news last spring.    VERY bad deal !!    The only thing left was that he must have been asleep.

That is sad. And this is the first time I have read that the speed limit on both roads was a posted 100kph.  In Ontario only our controlled access and all the 400 series highways are posted at 100. Every other road is either 80 or 90 max.  There is no way in hell the posted speed limit at the intersection should have been 100 in both directions.  They both should have been reduced prior to the intersection and I will bet there will be changes made to any other similar intersection.

After reading that article, it sure looks like the system failed to handle that truck driver.

when my brother was Minister of Transportation for Alberta , 2 Paki truck drivers  were stopped and both had identical drivers licence with address being the same.  eventually RCMP found out they bought them at a Alberta Registrie office in Calgary that a fellow Paki owned,  he was shut down and they found 250 or more fake licences out there.but only had picture of the real person.all fake addresses? these assholes come here with little truck driving experience and start driving these big 18 to 24 wheelers?

like the trucker that killed the team members,they work for another Paki.  Trudys uncle has a gravel pit 40 miles from here.those pakis used to come for gravel and ask him to back the trucks up?  then while waiting they had a hole cut in floor of truck and would take a crap thru the floor. he finally banned them all.
