How can the Dispatch even consider itself a legit media outlet when they publish this? GREAT HEADLINE!

Think of all the potential headlines that could begin with "PORN-LOVING..."

What an embarrassment for the Dispatch to print this. Maybe the Dispatch could have used the headline of:

DISTRACTED DRIVING - OHIO TRUCKER PLEADS GUILTY...

The Dispatch's use of this headline subliminally mocks efforts to bring attention to distracted driving.

A++ JOB DISPATCH!

I hope you all learn one important lesson from this article. Get OUT OF YOUR CAR when it is sitting disable in traffic. Get far away into the berm.

Benjamin Marrison's column from LAST WEEK claims the following:

"The best headlines pull readers into a story without being sensationalistic or misleading."

Ok, Marrison, so what's your excuse for this headline? No wonder newspapers are losing money.

Let's hear from all those posters that always blame someone other truck drivers whenever there are articles that involve them. Most truck drivers think they own the road because of their size. I use to drive from London and every morning while trying to enter 70 from Rt. 42, I would witness the truck drivers literally forcing people to stop for them or else be run off the road & they never had the right of way. Bullies in big rigs.

Because of their size? Or their truck's size?

Yeah, right, just what we need are a bunch of losers pulled off the side of our roads and highways watching porn while beating off.

Ok first of all if your car can get to the side of the road you should be required to get the hell off the freeway. To sit on a freeway stopped after hitting a deer is stupid. Too bad the accident didn't take both of these idiots. If you have an accident on a 65 mph road, you better realize that you're in a very dangerous situation and get away from your car if it can't be driven to the berm. Do I have to tell Dispatch reader's this? Probably.

I generally agree, but maybe there was a fence, guardrail, bridge, or otherwise no opportunity to really get away from the car. If there isn't enough room to get a safe distance away, it's actually safer to remain in your vehicle where you can be protected by the safety devices of the car itself. Easy with the insults, Charlie.
