Please do your homework before you write the stories headline! A broken airline causing rapid air lose applies the truck emergency brakes. So we had a hose failure not a brake failure. It's bad enough that the media has the public deathly afraid of commercial trucks, Now inaccurate headlines make it worst.

kinda sounds like splitting hairs to me. the brakes didnt work. And I don't blame the truck, or its driver. It clearly states that a ladder was the cause of the problem.

But don't worry...todays truck threat level is only at orange.

This wasn't a failure at all. The trucks brake system performed exactly as it desigend to work. The failsafe kicked in and the driver handled the incident without injury or damage. Good job.
