    That's a total disregard of common sense, no law can stop that. A bullet will only if you know ahead of time.

    1 dead, 6 injured. As expected, no way that sedan driver survived but she probably didn't check her rear view mirror often enough to avoid it.

    At that speed, there is very little she could have done after noticing that clown coming up.

    We are still not catching them all.
    Is there a side story that the truck driver was deemed to be impaired? Edit- Nevermind, I see you posted the story link in another post.

    In regards to the comment, they'll never catch them all, and probably only catch a small percentage of them. Until they start deeming breathalyzer ignition locks mandatory safety equipment that is. They can stipulate back up cameras to be mandatory equipment on new cars, so no reason they can't do it with ignition locks. In the meantime they have bigger fish to fry with distracted driving, not that they seem to be doing much about it either unfortunately.

    I donít think driver is impaired(was it?). More like a suicide, intent to kill or uncontrollable anger issues.

    Car that got rear ended got disintegrated. Feel bad for the innocent killed or hurt. One of the craziest crashes Iíve seen. Nuts.

    QFT. About a month ago I was driving my kid back to her mother's house. After I dropped her off and was just about back on to deerfoot, I got pulled over by CPS. Cop asked me why I was risking a ticket for using my phone. I replied I wasn't at all, and went to show him it was in my back pocket, only to realize I left it at home. I even showed the officer that my truck was saying to connect a phone, otherwise my phone connects automatically. I even let him search the truck. He got pissy and said that I must have hid it where he couldn't find it. I don't know what the cop thought he saw me doing, but he was itching to give me the distracted driving ticket, and I bet that if I hadn't forgotten it at home, I would have gotten the ticket.

    If you read further down in the comments of that video, it's posted that the truck driver had several DUI convictions on his record before this incident, and had also led the police on a high speed chase previously as well.

    Wow. I think this is one thing that we can probably agree on. Sure there's ways around it and its expensive but how this isnt a mandated thing yet is beyond me.

    If there is some rogue officers out there doing their job instead of following marching orders, I would absolutely thank them for their public service. But those few officers doing that hasn't had a big enough impact to change accident statistics yet, so as mentioned they still have bigger fish to fry with distracted driving as it easily out ranks impaired driving for accident causation.
