  1. So many semi’s on 80/94 and so many people trying to pass between them and others at high speeds that it can be scary or frustrating sometimes. Would be nice if semi’s had their own private highways but that isn’t the world we live in and probably never will be.

  2. Here’s the sad truth. The interstate highways were built for military and commercial vehicles so in essence the trucks are on their private highway. However the way both truckers and private vehicles drive on the 80/94 even when neither is intoxicated is dangerous. How many times do you read on here of people driving well over the speed limit on 80/94? That highway is so dangerous that ISP is hard pressed to stop anyone out there. It’s not that they can’t, but the safety issues of doing so preclude any positive results. Trying to marshal a speeding vehicle off to the shoulder is problematic.

  3. The semi never stopped this is bullshit… And neither did the car the car that pushed us under the truck they both kept on going. Im just glad we are both alive… Everthing else will fall into place everything happens for a reason.
