    I followed a concrete truck hammering down Joes Hill, skidding the bends, 3 cars coming up the hill pulled over to miss an accident it was scary. If the hills to steep use alternative route or trucking method

      The hills are not too steep, all the driver needs to do is go slow and cars for people’s lives. I see these fools all the time almost hitting me and others too. The was no reason for this!

    these service trucks are always in a hurry and most of the times those driving them forget that they have in not only cargo but also human.Take your time the life you save might just be yours.

    Question? Is it the roads or something else?

    These drivers need to drive slow with those big trucks on the roads. When I see them speeding towards me on the road, I pull aside & stop to give them way because they drive like they own the roads. Glad to know no one was hurt but take your time the next you drive coming down the hill.

    To honest the companies hire any so call driver no knowing experience/skills etc.Driving a con. truck with 7/9 yards in a hill u have to be skilled plus cornering in hill again down hills and again the condition of these trucks.Safety is a must and when I look at the state of these Trucks on VG roads it's disgusting.Who will investigate this accodent to determine the cause? Remember this is the second in record time.DMW do ur job
