18-wheelers are so passe - try 110 wheels on a 160-foot-long “Road Train”!
EXTREME MACHINES - WORLDS LONGEST TRUCKS (by ProudlyDownunder)
You know how they tell you not to cut in FRONT of tractor-trailers on the road because it takes them a lot longer to stop than it takes you in your little automobile? Here’s proof positive that truck drivers don’t always leave a safe following distance and it’s up to YOU to make sure you stay safe on the road.
Today there was a pretty serious accident on I-85 Northbound at about 7:45, not 5 minutes before I passed the wreck while going southbound. (Five injured, nobody killed, thank god.) 3 tractor-trailers were involved - this is the THIRD of the three, which couldn’t stop in time and smashed into the back of the one in front of it. The one in the very front was almost sideways across the highway and blocked all the lanes of traffic. They JUST NOW reopened all the lanes of traffic after the accident - prior to that, traffic had been backed up at a standstill for about 6 miles down the highway.
