To all you people out there leaving immature and uneducated comments,you need to shut your mouth and keep your opinions to yourself. Unless you were in the truck or have even driven and 18 wheeler on a unsigned, no detour or directions signs and nothing saying that no trucks can go on that road then you are in NO POSITION TO JUDGE! It was also dark to put all on top of the city's "heads stuck in the sand" with regards to fixing the problem. There are witnesses that state they have been petitioning for a 3 way stop and a NO TRUCKS designation for many years. Because of they would rather wait for someone to get killed rather than fix the problem. Over 3-5 truck per month get introuble down that road with that underpass. They are going in blind with no help at all from the ministry of transport to ensure a driver not familiar with that area has a safe route to go when they have closed a road and not offered any detour/alternate route. And to the clueless reporter who stated he was "FLYING" down the highway. Piss off. If you consider 40km/hr flying, you are a very poor driver indeed. Where exactly were you attached on that truck to judge his speed.!! OH WAIT!!! YOu weren't!!!!!!!!!!
CHECK your stats on that route peanut gallery and newspaper tabloids!! YUP Tabloid, before you make uneducated guesses and make an already bad situation worse. God help you if what goes around comes around!!!!!!!!!!
