    Of course the media pointed out in their usual unbiased reporting,that drivers of automobiles do not text, cut in front of trucks to make a turn or exit the expressway, pull out in front of trucks,only to go a block or so,then brake and turn, or pass entering construction zones in the upcoming closed lane that had signs indicating the closure for 2 miles.. Or statistics on how many crashes automobiles cause because of distracted drivers....Or the fact that cars,far outnumber the amount of trucks on the highway,and probably close to 70 percent of car drivers are on the phone,or texting...yes. I am glad they were giving blame to both sides...
