    Thanks for the interpretation of Airbrakes post chitownpeddler.
    I didn't notice that was a sack of cough drops.

    And keep me informed,may you all have a very safe holiday season.

    We will have to install cough monitors in trucks now and if you cough more than once an hour, you will have to do a "Cough Study" before you can be issued a DOT physical card.

    Even though your thoughts on the cause of this crash sounds funny autocar65.
    We never know what our government is going to do next?
    Of course every new law is always for our protection,don't you know.

    We Americans have such a hard time protecting ourselves.
    We must need more laws,to keep us safe.
