  • Cool pics. .

    Did the benzo do a pit on the grow truck? I say grow truck because it isn’t allowed to drive under budget.

    Or a case of a government truck driving like they have all day, and then some?

    Either way, the government truck is illegal, and is not allowed to be driven on the road. It should be towed and crushed for it’s crimes against Humanity.

    Hope all Humans are OK, and the Mafia can replace it at nine times the true cost.

  • Wow! That mercedes really punched it. Wunder if cell phone could be a factor. There have been a lot of accidDents lately where that could be a possibility. Maybe people caught talking on cell phones should be treated like DUI’s. Making a SOBER decision to put others at risk is in some ways as bad as making an impaired decision. I don’t know that the case here. But the roads and HWY’s are getting pretty risky around here. Everywhere else too, I guess. My next rig will be the biggest one I can afford, maybe with a big cow catcher for a front bumper.
