    Is everyone on vacation? No smarta** comments about how those dangerous trucks should be banned from Hwy 12? How those nasty, hairy, sweaty Truck Drivers are responsible for the deaths of untold millions of innocent motorists?

    If anyone should be banned from this roadway, it should be Class C drivers who have this insane tendency to steer head-on into big trucks. Motorcycle riders are much worse. I watched EMS scrape the last one up with a shovel just a few weeks ago.

    Who will compensate the Truck Driver and his passenger for their pain and suffering? Who will cough up $250,000 to pay for the tractor, trailer and the destroyed load? How about another $50-grand to help the Truck Driver pay his bills and keep his house for the next 6 months while he is in rehab? Hmmm..I don't see anyone here taking up a collection. Very curious indeed.
