Tough day on the Cariboo Highway

Situational awareness - before you get out, think did I make the vehicle safe?

Unoccupied truck

I got in on the clean up of an accident like that once.......... one of our #1 dump truck drivers came into the county yard and parked on a small slope and then went into the building for his break.
Came back out of the building and exclaimed... Where's my truck? Who the hell stole my truck?
Then somebody pointed to the big hole in the chain link yard fence and then the leaking 50 gallon saddle tanks leaking diesel fuel down the street. It also came close to hitting several parked cars and a apartment building!
I got in on the spreading of sand for two blocks on the spilled fuel for containment and cleanup...... jdadoug.
