Idiocy on the 401

This just happened. This idiot did an illegal U-turn right in front of us and is now blocking the Westbound 401 near exit 730 at Cardinal, Ont. this is going to affect lots of people.

    OK, that ranks with the TWO times I have been on a divided highway, only to see a car driving TOWARDS me, in the same lane, just off the exit ramp. Darwin award candidate.

    Recently I wrote the OPP Commissioner about why these tractor trailer drivers NEVER get pulled over for constant tailgating. The Commissioner decided I guess not to respond to my email. I emailed the Minister of Transportation and my email was sent back to the OPP and that got their attention.

    I then received a shit filled twinky response from the OPP.

    I drive the Toronto to Kingston 401 route regularly 6 months of the year and again, regardless of how fast I drive I am tailgated and I have never ever seen or heard about one of these drivers being pulled over. Your video shows a potential massive life killing collision. If possible and if you can identify the truck, consider making a complaint.

    take his/her license away …

    I’ll be right there.

    It would be perfect with a Vote Trump logo photo-shopped on the side of the truck.

    I like you warren, but driving a truck is a hard job. They have deadlines like you, have to navigate that machine through traffic, and have a boss to please who will fire them if they don’t get it done. So try sitting in that seat and then unleash the sanctimony. You are better than to complain about a working man trying to get his job done. Like I said – I like you, and the way you fight for people, but in this case i think you should be more lenient. Who knows what this guy has been through, and like i said driving a truck is every bit as stressful as sitting in the office. It’s a very stressful job, and the deadlines are tight, the hrs are long, and the pay is marginal – so give the guy a break.

      Give me a fucking break. He made a totally illegal and incredibly dangerous U turn. Check out what the OPP had to say about it. They didn’t succumb to any bullshit lectures about how “hard” this idiot works. He could’ve killed many people.

    It’s the perfect metaphor for Donald Trump’s relationship to the GOP…

  8. pat says:

    I’ve done both, although not a truck that big. The stress of driving through traffic all day, everyday is palpable. It’s not easy. The stress of an office is that a lot of office types are cronies who were never that big of a deal, but think the world owes them for having lived easy since birth. That’s pretty stressful. Driving a truck is hard on your body, and an office is tough because nepotism is usually valued more than talent, work ethic or brains.

    Here in Quebec City, the national sport now is driving through red lights…beans for brains.

    How about that. a semi just did this a half hour ago just south of Nanaimo on the Island Highway. For the time it took for the driver to extricate his rig, the entire Canada was cut off from the Upper Island.

  11. Kevin says:

    Oh my. Of course driving a truck is stressful and tiring. But if your reaction to stress is to try to take 70 feet of truck and put it through a tight u-turn on the busiest stretch of road in the country, instead of say, taking the next off-ramp, crossing the highway by the overpass and coming back on the other side on-ramp, you should look for some other line of work. I really don’t want you in charge of 40 tons of projectile coming at me at 100K.
