DRUGS. Every truck driver I met from 1965 through 1989 that worked for my dad at the plant off of Stoney Island were drunks and used drugs. We didn't know it at the time. Hell, they grew weeds in my dad's trailer...called them plants...he didn't know what the crap was, nor did us kids. Reflecting back...no wonder they died and the ones living (two) are straight.

I've known my best friends who's kids were killed in Indiana long ago in 2004 cut off by semis on rural roads. Three of them. All in their early 20s and written about in the Times. Time to ask the county to shuffel their routes. I just exprienced three semis holding up traffic west-bound from Indiana, three in three lanes, holding up traffic. No cops. Wondering if they are legal drivers; rules of the road are they stay in the right lane. No cops around. My cell phone which only texts, but allows 911 for emergencies...ran out of juice. Otherwise I would have called and told them the mile mark. They are the result of so many accidents.

Why is it...there are sooo many accidents on 65?
Seems every week or quite often there are terrible accidents on U.S. 65.
Saw today's news about a fiery collision between 2 semis.
I get so scared when I have to go through the construction area on the Bhorman...I fear for my life trying to maintain the required 45 mph construction site...semi's run bumper to bumper going as fast as they can, cut you off, because they want to go faster...same with some cars zigging in and out of the available lanes exceeding the required minimum 45 at those sites.
I wish they would have cops hidden in construction trucks to radio ahead for other cops to grab them. It really is a dangerous place to try and drive through. I almost got clipped again last week by a semi who didn't even bother to use his signal.

I pray each time if I can only reach the Valparaiso exit to get downstate...that I will make it alive.

I'm convinced now, after reading so very often semi's involved in crashes that they have no real license.

How hard is it to stay in the lanes the signs tell you (semi-drivers) to stay in, not cross a solid white line, not use left lanes and quit threatening to ram my bumper while I am obeying the law. This applies in IL, also.

Why, if the state can make tons of money by hiding out in a contruction vehicle, radio ahead who broke the rules of the road...why don't they do this and fatten their coffers?

I rarely see the county cops on the Borhman...but in Michigan...they are staked out all over under viaducts.

It's just logical...so if the state needs money...there it is.
