  • Happens every time it snows…

  • Met that same semi a couple of weeks ago near Burnt Ranch. He was flying. He probably didn’t slow down for the snow.

  • Hopefully, nobody was (or gets) seriously injured. Also, hopefully the CHP is issuing tickets to each driver that has crashed or ended up in the ditch because they didn’t have adequate tires or chains on for the conditions.

    • yeah because tickets help people to be able to afford such things as new tires. lets make the world a better place by charging people more when they cant afford it

      • Try obeying the law and you might not get a ticket

      • Laws are passed mainly in response to past tragedies, in an effort to reduce preventable accidents and the injuries and suffering that often occur as a result. To ignore the law, for whatever reason, puts oneself and others at unnecessary risk.

  • Can’t fix or tax stupid

    • blame ourselves

      stupid used to fix itself, permanently, but we coddle too many people these days and they become a problem for everyone else.
