Wind skirts may have prevented this from happening...I know they’ve saved me a few times!!
For me wind skirts amplify the wind.... just my opinion
Not trying to start an augment Red but I have seen ones with skirts on have plenty of air under the tandems didn't flip but it was up there
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.
Yep, should've parked that baby.
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.
Red, I'm sorry man. you must be a a** kissing piece of s*** to think trailer skirts are gonna save you from flipping over. Really man? How long have you really been puling pups??? Wow? I am really starting to guess that you are ...FedEx management. Because you can't be that stupid...
Go ahead Red, explain. I dear you, in one of your long explanations. Explain how trailer skirts are going to keep you from flipping over in high winds???? Really??? You think to much of yourself.
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!!
So...who exactly is this turd burglar anyway? It would appear grammar wasn’t his strongest subject.
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.
Red, Whut wure you thanking, the squirts are too keep deer frum runnin under the trailer. "deere me"
I never got the squirts under the trailer.... I might bump my head when I wipe.... those skirts would hide my fat azz though....lol
