Leave Some ROOM!
In a recent snowstorm there were several huge crashes in Ohio involving as many as 90 vehicles. Why is this? People, please leave enough room to stop. Yes, even in bad weather. If you cannot stop if there is an accident in front of you, you are traveling too fast for conditions. If that means leaving 500 feet and going 25mph, that is what is means. Everyone that crashed into the growing accident scene should be ticketed. I see this often as I am sure you all do as well. Tailgating by all vehicle is rampant and needs to end. We need to do our part as professional drivers and NOT TAILGATE. Tailgating could mean an accident or worse. Do people think it will get them to their destination faster or are there just more bad drivers today? If we want to not have cameras in our face and watching our every move we need to drive safely. Unfortunately, when studies are done companies find that camera equipped trucks have much less chance to get involved in this type of accident. The more of these there are, the more cameras we are going to get. Drive safely.
See you on the road!

Everyone should care for their lives and the lives of their passengers. I believe that we should be careful while driving. Follow all the road rules will keep them safe. We should not rush unless it's an emergency or someones life is in danger. Tailgating is a big NO on the road. There's no space in case of a sudden brake of the car in front. We should follow every rule to avoid accident and lost lives.
