I agree totally. I've seen enough accidents. I sure don't want to be in one!

July, 2011......15 miles south of Brookings, SD...............this was the only RV on its side, but add at least 7 18-wheelers to the mix too... +90 mph straight line winds from west to east with tornadoes in area. I had my WX alert radio function on and we stopped in Brookings at a Lowe's to get out of the wind and rain... good thing I heeded the WX warning, or I might have been on my side too...This was a tag trailer pulled by a SUV, and looked like they had to cut the top off the SUV to get them out....

What gets me is looking at the pix, it looks like he has an Ez-Lift hitch bar... could be wrong, as not a clear shot, but if so, doesnt know how to use it..

That looks like the Wiener Mobile. My high school friends father worked for Oscar Mayer Wiener and used to drive that thing.

The Wiener Mobile is a strange looking vehicle from head on!

This picture was taken last June between Rayne and Lafayette Louisiana on I-10 east bound.

What a job!
