Every day the toll mounts of innocent Americans killed by these sleazy
illegal alien drivers. Though Americans were not killed in this incident it
just typifies the increasing hazard. Thanks goodness the American truck
driver was not injured.

Chaining up the compact car

How am I supposed to do this?  I’ve been practicing on the small car
FWD and have gotten faster at it.  But when it’s -30 outside I need
some rubber gloves to protect the hands.  The probem with that is I
need to be able to feel what is going on back there behind the tire.
The cable needs to be threated together somehow and I need to feel it
with the skin in order to know how it all hooks up underneath all of
that.

Anyone here have any noteworthy suggestion?

The bunch of wimps now infesting Washington are immobilized by the fear of

Just what we need – Truckdrivers with multiple sclerosis

http://www.mlive.com/news/sanews/index.ssf?/base/news-3/1138447556318…

Trucker pleads no contest in traffic-stop death
Saturday, January 28, 2006

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ALLEGAN — A truck driver who hid his progressive multiple sclerosis
to keep his job has pleaded no contest to vehicular homicide in a
fiery crash that killed an Alma College graduate whom police had
pulled over for a speeding violation.

David Gale, 43, of Ada, Ohio, entered the plea this week during a
hearing in Allegan County Circuit Court.

In Michigan, a no-contest plea is not an admission of guilt, but the
judge treats it the same at sentencing. Gale faces up to 15 years in
prison when he is sentenced Friday.

Early June 23, 2004, Allegan County Sheriff’s Deputy Jon Bender pulled
over Emily Van Dyke’s vehicle on Interstate 196 near Holland, about a
mile south of where U.S. 31 merges with the freeway. Moments later,
Gale’s truck plowed into the back of the police cruiser, then rolled
over Van Dyke’s car and dragged it into a ditch, where both caught
fire.

The collision killed Van Dyke, 22, of Saugatuck. She recently had
graduated from Alma College and was preparing to start teaching at a
North Carolina elementary school.

Gale and the deputy suffered minor injuries.

Gale initially told investigators he had fallen asleep behind the
wheel of his rig. Police and prosecutors later discovered that he has
multiple sclerosis.

Medical records show Gale was diagnosed with the disease March 8,
2004, but did not disclose the diagnosis two months later when he
sought to renew his commercial driver’s license.

He also persuaded a doctor in his hometown to sign a certificate
stating he is qualified for a commercial license, prosecutors said.

Gale, who was strapped into a wheelchair during his plea hearing, said
he had stopped taking his multiple sclerosis medication before the
crash.

So he kills someone and he faces 15 years MAXIMUM!!?? That should be
the minimum but then, this is criminal coddler america.

I hold the same view. However I favor a cheaper solution. That is to remove
the incompetents and LLBs from the road.

BTW, the goal of congestion pricing etc and so forth is one of logging
and controling travel. If they really wanted to reduce driving a simple
increase in the gasoline tax would be enough. However the solution always
seems to involve government control.

Ban speed limits? Here's a plan i could live with

Speed lovers would be given plates telling the HP that the driver is
allowed to drive as fast as he or she wants. But they would also have
attached to the vehicle a sensor that constantly records their speed.
If they are judged at fault in a crash and  if the sensor says they
were 10 mph or more over the limit within say 3 seconds of the crash,
then they would permanently lose their DL. If the crash involves a
death, then they go to prison for life.

The pedalphiles like to say they can handle speed  so why should they
object to this?

Re: Left foot braking

No…..
It allows immediate transitions from gas to brake and back to gas,
giving the driver much more precise control over the balance of the
car, whether it be approach of the corner, entry, mid-corner, or exit.

Power braking is only a small part of left-foot braking, sometimes used
mid corner for very minor adjustments to the car’s balance.
