    Does anyone know where on Windy Hill the truck is lying. It could affect a lot of people’s decision on how they go home and for those who live up there.

    First of all, I hope that the driver is okay. Sometimes they speed too fast in too trucks. They ought to drive with caution.

      Truck drivers drive with reckless abandon because no one enforces traffic laws. Commercial vehicles should be inspected on a regular basis. When was the last time brakes were checked? Tire pressure? Outer rear right tire is bald. Tire pattern in front different (is that within manuf recommendations)? Was driver tested for impairment (people enjoy their beers at all hours hereabouts)? Probably zero consequence despite the inconvenience created, and the mess that someone else will pay to clean up.

    Maybe it's time for these big long heavy trucks to stay off the main roads when a cruise ship is in Road Harbour.
