There’s no such thing as a semi-truck and a tractor-trailer rig weighs more than 5 tons.
There are trailers which have front and back axles.
Semi-trailers have axles in back.
The thingy that pulls a semi-trailer is a tractor or truck.
Empty semi-trailers weigh about 12,500lbs.
Small tractors (trucks) weigh about 12,500lbs.
As some1 who drives an 18wheeler 4 a living-mt weight is 32000lbs full weight is 80000 or 20 ton-granted the trk in the vidio is a daycab and rated at 65000lbs-mite be mt but it still weighs over 25000 or 10.5ton(2000=1ton)

A tractor-trailer weighs much more than 5 tons and
there’s no such thing as a semi-truck,
There are trailers which have axle in front and back.
There are semi-trailers which have only rear axles.
Empty semi-trailers weigh about 12,000 lbs.
The things that pull the semi-trailers are tractors or trucks. The small ones weigh about 12,500lbs.
1 ton=2000lbs-my trk when full weighs 40ton or 80000lbs,granted this trk has a day cab(no sleeper)he still weighs,if full,80000.on a side note-thr is no trailer on the market with wheels in the front,all trailer wheels are in the back,the front tires on the doubles are on a removable 5th wheel-the(the front trailer tires)are called the drives on the tractor the trailers king pin goes into 5th wheel which connectes trl to tractor-if 5th wheel doesnt latch and you pull away the trl falls & man is that a BIG recker bill-i dont mean to sound like a yahoo-

If he was sued for the damage he caused, it would exceed our national debt.

The communities which provide security for DNC fundraisers should feel good about being a part of history.
Rock on. Hydrate, pick up on some Urdu and pidgin espanol.
Action bro action good for you! Do you live in Texas?
Where can we donate to your defense fund?

Man in denim shorts crashed his truck into another man’s truck and then the man in the denim shorts yanked the other driver out of the car
The man in the denim shorts created the situation and should pay for all all damages, including the “pain and suffering of the wimp
Man in denim shorts should be sentenced to a lifetime to live with the women on top

There’s no such thing as a Semi truck. Trailers without front axles, which need to be towed by a tractor are Semi-trailers
A semi is the trailer- not truck or tractor

I drove tractor-trailers in 44 of the lower 48 states and am a driver manager now.
Drivers know not to use personal GPS for navigation because they don’t route for big rigs.
We use Qualcomm GPS which routes correctly, on rare concessions, it does have problems witb street addresses but never routes on restricted roads.
We know not to get on restricted roads because those roads weren’t designed for over-weight & heights. They’re not constructed to annoy truckers.
On rare concessions I have noticed restricted access roads weren’t clearly marked.
But it always boils down to the driver is responsible for their rig, cargo and safety of other motorists.
Most of us are cautious and aware of others on the road.
One thing that would get rid of dangerous commercial drivers would be for cops to pull over tail-gaters- they are more likely to ignore safe driving habits. The points against their license will put them out of trucking biz

Russia and China are expanding their areas of control.
Muslim Brotherhood has expanded thanks to financial support from Obama.
Obama has facilitated brotherhoods infiltration into foreign and domestic governments.
Obama is either the worse President of the United States or the best friend of oppression.
He didn’t lie.
What did he say that was incorrect.
It’s not right to punish honesty and reward corruption.

I don’t know.
A message from a of peace.
How could that be bad?
Evil vs Good
That’s what’s at stake?

STOP SPENDING OUR MONEY MOOCHER.
Just because you can’t find you hidden money doesn’t mean you have a right to spend ours.
DC allows Michelle to travel so much to keep her away from them. They create a distance between them and her by allowing her to go away as much as possible.
Michelle is becoming to be known as the most hated First Ladies.
This form of baby sitting is out of control.

Moochel is the most expensive “First Lady” we have ever had yet the most worthless.
The House of Representatives is sposed to control the purse, why do they allow that high-maintenance biotch and her mooching family to spend our money on constant lavish vacations.
Her wings need to be clipped now.

Elimination of the Constitution & worship of government is a religion of the Progressives.
They are godless creatures & should never be as allowed near children. They can’t be trusted.

Oh, I’m as giddy as a schoolboy.
If Hilary becomes our President, all the dead people in her wake would magically disappear.
Even her most recent fiasco with Benghazi would vanish, she would become the
first female president.
Aren’t we suffering under the first quazi–Afro-American president?
Her vergina doesn’t qualify her to be President.
Actually, her performance and lack of qualifications prevent her from being President.
Unless the election of the Chief Executive is just a popularity contest.
I was going to brush my teeth and hit the rack but I believe I am going to kill myself with a ball bat instead.
why did you need to refer to Hillarys vergina?
I have nothing else to type at this point.
I can understand Ecoho5Charlie's pain and I don't mean to create additional distress but won't Hillary be our first woman/lesbian president? Slick would be our first sexual perverted "first man", They both would put the final nail in the coffin for America.

Now that I have heard both sides of the story, both were wrong.
