Alberta RCMP are stressing safety in construction zones and on secondary highways after recent crashes on Highway 9, where a new video of a semi trying to pass in a construction zone is sparking more concern.
Paul is a good guy isn't he?I was sitting in a meeting with Paul from Thompson Emergency yesterday. One of the items that came up in the meeting was that we had awarded them 2 dedicated loads a week. He mentioned to me that when he saw that the first of these dedicated loads was being put under one specific driver, and he knows this driver well he was extremely happy. I asked him to clarify and the answer was simple: She conducts herself behind the wheel, in front of shippers and consignees as a true professional. She takes her job very seriously and knows she is an embassador of the company (both Thompson and in this case the broker that contracted her employer).
Hats off to ALL professional drivers, thank you from all of us in the industry.
This video above in my opinion is inconclusive. We don't know what the people in the car were doing for sure before this transpired. What if they slowed down to let the truck pass, then sped up as the truck was passing? I've seen plenty of asshole car drivers, usually when I'm on the bike without safety features such as a seatbelt, airbag or roof.
