Long ago I was on the RWB VFD in Breck and we took a Hazmat awareness course w/ a bunch of other Summit County fire departments. A guy from Snake River FD told about watching tanker trucks come barreling through Keystone with their brakes smoking and unable to stop, blowing right through the redlight by the mini-mart.
I also remember hearing a stat that the average trucker involved in accidents on I-70 in the mountains had about 6 months experience, and was usually from somewhere without snow driving.
Be careful out there when you see one of those guys in your rearview.
