    Notice the snow and slick roads? Utah law says NO TRIPLES in these conditions.
    Profit over safety ................Surprised it was not a ground contractor

    He forgot it. That's why he was turning around so he could go back and get it

    Depends on his record. A driver at our barn rolled a whole set 2 yrs ago, he's still on the road board.

    I was told it was offensive to call it a "kite," please inform the uniformed. I'm sure it is not spelled "kite" either. I just call it a "tail" to be politically correct.

    Why would kite be offensive? I think you are thinking of "kike" which is actually the disparaging word used for Jews

    Last time I checked, FedEx didn't fire people for driving safely....

    If you have enough weeks of vacation, they'll find a reason.

    And you're saying they fire people for no valid reason? Just because of their vacation time? Seriously? So I guess the driver in my neck of the woods with 25+ years service who just got fired, was fired for having 4 weeks a year vacation, not for totaling a set of doubles in the rain, and telling the CHP "I don't know what happened". <<<ZZZZZZZ. CHP says he fell asleep at the wheel. Wonder why they came to that conclusion....must be all that vacation time.
