    ARP THE JURY. What is your verdict and if an award should be given to GC?

    Let us be the jury here. You decide the fate of GC in his suit against a trucking company for damages suffered by him running into the back of a parked truck on a highway.

My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."
    Sen. Barry Goldwater

    Seriously?

    Where I live, traffic stops all of the time on the highway. If you run into someone, then you were traveling too fast for the conditions. That's the law.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    If you rear-end a car aren’t you almost by default considered at fault?

    Been like that ever since I've been driving.

    When I was a kid I loved driving on winding mountain roads at night. I developed a thing I called rock speed. What that meant was when you were going around a bend in the road, and there was a boulder blocking the road, you had to be able to stop in time. Rock speed.

    If you run into a parked vehicle, then you either weren't paying attention, you were driving faster than rock speed, or both.

    Typically yes. But when a professional road crew sets up a work area, they are to follow clearly outlined regulations in the MUTCD Chapter 6. It tells them how to set out their cones, how far back to set them depending on the speed of the traffic, what type of signage to use, what combination of signage to use, etc. When they block a bike lane certain signage is also required. When they work on a State Hwy, which they were, more signage is required.

    When one of us uses the highway, yes, we can stop as traffic dictates and the cars behind are required to stop. But when lanes are professionally closed and blocked, they are to follow the MUTCD and the WATCH Manual. They totally disregarded it.

    So let's be clear, you ran into a parked vehicle, correct?

    1. The trucking company should be awarded any legal fees suffered by GC's frivelous irresponsible lawsuit.

    2. GC should pay for any damage done to the bumper of the truck.

    3. GC should have to pay restitution for any emergency vehicles at the scene.

    4. GC should be forced to carry a plant around to replace the oxygen he depletes.

    Perhaps my advice in a previous thread should be repeated here. Can't resist.

    Well it looks like to me that GC should get a seeing eye service dog of the Greyhound breed so he could keep up with GC on his bike and bark before he runs into something else. Yeah. LOL. Thank you, thank you very much

    I can out-pace and out-endure any greyhound dog. I bet I can out-endure any horse too. Easily.

    But I cannot outrun a conservative jury.

    As the Leader of the Ulta-Right Wing shows his insensitivity and shallowness. It seems to be a common trait there.

    You or them are not my peers. Not by a longshot.

    The fact that they breath air does not make them my peers.
