    Wind skirts may have prevented this from happening...I know they’ve saved me a few times!!

    Let’s forget the wind skirt pissing match for a moment.
    It went over onto the driver’s side.
    How is the driver?

    I just texted a good friend of mine thats a road supervisor for you guys. He told me that the driver is a little sore, but will be ok.

    I dunno, I’m of the mindset that anytime the wind lifts up the skirt, It’s a good day. Maybe I’m just ole’ fashioned that way

    Hope the driver is ok,and still has a job. Remember the guys out of Little Rock who hit the police car going into Cincinnati and the weather channel played it to death. The police said the driver did nothing wrong no ticket issued but fdx fired him anyway.

    Preventable. No question. He should have stayed home that day.

    In this case I think the only way this driver could have avoided over turning was to have taken the day off.
    Before retiring in the 45 yrs, I was a P&D driver,some really bad weather days,I booked off.
    I was afraid to take a chance to drive & have something happen to cause me to lose my job.

    Well...since you “deared” me, I have no choice but to respond...

    In your failed attempt to discredit by attacking me personally, all you did was show the class just how ignorant you really are.

    You see, there’s always more to the story than just a sample 10 sec video...so let’s observe...



    If you’ll notice in the full video, the trucks with no side skirts overturned while those with skirts stayed upright!!

    Class dismissed!! :1036316054:

    Conclusion; The state of Wyoming has banned all trucks from the state, since the wind never quits blowing there.

    It is to me a personal opinion.... if you feel more comfortable with a trailer with skirts then go with it.... I'm not going to argue about it....

    Like I said...... For me wind skirts amplify the wind.... just my opinion

    And I do agree with Dick.... how is the driver is more important.
