Let me enlighten you.
I was driving on I-10 yesterday and there was a pick up truck pulling a flatbed trailer. He was two cars ahead of me. Oh and did I mention that we were driving in the far right lane. And it was rush hour just past 610 W.
So back to the truck. All of a sudden the trailer is fishtailing across the lane. So I slow down and try to decide if I should switch lanes or not, when the trailer detaches and flies across 5 lanes of traffic. I don't know know how, but it managed to not hit one single car. I guess everyone said their prayers that day. I know I do every time I drive in Houston.
