  • Probably a Conservative grower, can’t handle the responsibility of keeping it on the road.

    • Ugh. And the dumbest comment of the day goes to ^^

      • See if you can convince me with Confucius quotes. 😂😂😂

          • Revenge? Oh,c’mon, it’s not that harsh. I am demonstrating how utterly ridiculous it is to make sweeping blanket accusations against huge groups of people that aren’t directly responsible for said accusations. By the reaction I’m getting it’s seems that nobody likes this behavior . Conclusion; The Democrats here don’t like anyone doing it, including fellow Democrats. On the other hand, The Conservatives here don’t like it, tell me so, but let their fellow Conservatives slide when they do it. Funny,ain’t it?

    • Pathetic

  • There were some surprisingly windy spots on 101 between redway&eureka yesterday, some serious gusts blowing some semi trailers around!

  • Can we see video?!

  • I’d guess another tundra owner thinks it’s a 3/4 ton pickup, and towing either a poorly distributed load, or overloaded. Most likely normal load, and fishing for cell phone service texting, and over correcting.

    • It was a small camp trailer, but yeah, the tundra driver, being a tundra driver was probably doing 90 and couldn’t understand why it didn’t brake like it does without a load. Because it’s a tundra.

    • It is unbelievable what people will tow with. My husband is a welder and had people ask him to attach hitches and whatever else was needed to small cars and he refused because he did not want his company to be libel for any accidents. I have seen many cars towing trailers and find it simply amazing.

      • calling it like I see it

        The towing capacity of my Tunda is 7100 pounds. You all would be surprised what people in countries that care about global warming will tow with their cars! Trying to justify that grow dozer with the perfect paint in the bed?

    • Well, I have no idea what happened so I’m going to make something up. He had a banana in his glove box and was reaching over to get it when he hit those vibrators on the side of the road. It startled him, he looked up and corrected but the trailer started swerving and up over the guard rail he went. He never did get to eat the banana. Also, he is a Trump supporter.
