Durn State Police. Accidents like that have a lot more to do with leaving enough space ahead of you. Speed is relevent, but tailgating is bad as well.

how in the world do you manage a 22 car pileup. if everyone would just slow down stuff like this wouldn't happen but there are a few out there that think since they have four-wheel drive they can go as fast as they want in any conditions. truck drivers think the weight of their vehicle is going to help them but it won't

"It's due to motorists driving too fast for the road conditions," state police Sgt. Rod Russell said. "They're not taking time to slow down for the road conditions."

a brilliant deduction, Sgt. Russell!

You "original" Hosers will try to blame ANYTHING that you can on Mitch. And it's only because his changes are too much for your inbred-addled brains to handle.

What in the world does this have to do with who owns the road? ITs drivers not being careful and going too fast. Get a life and leave our great governor alone.

I-94 is not part of the Indiana Toll Road. That's just one of the factual misstatements in your post.

I don't support the whole "major moves" idea, but I-94 was not part of the sale. I80-90 was the toll road that was sold.

Hey "info", learn your facts first before you run off your mouth. The road they are talking about is I-94, not the 80-90 tollway (the road that the state DID NOT sale off). You're an ill-informed nimrod....

Probably all talking on their cell phones, drinking coffee, and eating breakfast as they try to drive in the snow, with no regard for weather conditions. Darwin awards for everyone!

Most people drive too fast, most of the time. Sometimes, although not very often, they pay a heavy price.

Ya, because truck drivers NEVER do anything wrong. Except maybe those three truck drivers that passed me on a slick US 30 this morning doing 75-80 mph.

Hey moron. The accident was on I-94 NOT I-80/I-90. Go spread your vitriol elsewhere you waste of space and air.
