well, excuse me................

but, there was a terrible crash in my area about 2-3 years ago.

it involved a Smith Transport driver. Smith Transport - Dedicated To Excellence


this IDIOT, did a u-turn from the high speed lanes of I-95 in the state of RI, into the median, and out the other side. it was early morning.

an innocent man, on his way to work was in the high speed lane.

it don't MATTER that the guy was in the hammer lane........(the 4 wheeler)

it DOES MATTER that the idiot Smith Transport driver WAS, and doing an ILLEGAL u-turn ON A HIGHWAY....

the man in his four wheeler didn't (or couldn't) see the turning trailer.......

the man rear-ended the trailer, and died at the scene.

it took at least 2 wreckers to remove the 4 wheeler from the trailer........


one man died, because of an IDIOT truck driver...........

so the moral to your statement is, "it don't have to be a Mexican driver" that does stupid things..............

AMERICAN truck drivers are STUPID AS WELL................

the homegrown variety we are stuck with we do not need to outsource more fools into this country. read the entire article it says that this is a weekly occurrence on the mexican side and while I agree that a few idiots here slip thru the cracks it isn't the norm. as it seems to be over there, remember the dynamite truck that blew up a large chunk of a town in mexico last year? even the homegrown variety isn't that stupid. If you have ever been across the border you would see that the people have a completely different perspective down there the have no respect for the law,they laugh at rules and regulations,and have a lot lower value on life it is there to see if you want to take the time to look

we as a nation of capitalizm, "out source" many things..........

i didn't bother to read the article, your response stopped me in my tracks you made it "sound" like, we have perfect truck drivers here in this country, which i so eagerly pointed out, "we don't"............

remember the dynamite truck that blew up a large chunk of a town in mexico last year?
uh... no.........i must have been watching CSI that night.........


i don't want to "cross any borders"...............i like it just fine "up here", where there are "enough" foreign language speaking people..........making me feel all warm and fuzzy...........

never said that we were perfect but the American trucker not only try harder to do it right they are also watched much more closely, take a load down to Laredo one of these days and watch what junk the Mexicans use to cross the border oh and be careful as you cross the parking lot in the truck stop, if that Mexican driver has enough room he will be on the high side doing the legal speed limit,[for the highway] and if he don't hit you with the truck he still might get you with whatever falls off as he hits that speed bump at the same time he is tring for 7th or 8th.
If you have the time and the nerve pay the limo driver to take you across the border,there you will really get your eyes opened,just be careful, stay with the group,any you may not get kidnapped or shot, take some hideout money with you in case the local cops, [army] decides to shake you down and don't mind the gunfire it goes on all the time usually not directed at you.
Think I am exaggerating? go see for yourself it will change your perspective on the idea of not only the cross border issue but you will wonder why they haven't already put that fence up they keep talking about.
