In one of my earlier posts I said that in my opinion there were a lot of fools out there driving too fast while pulling a travel trailerâ€¦ This week I have again proved my theory. Between July 20th and July 26th, my job as a member of a wildland fire crew support team had me driving two round trips per day between Camino, CA and Crows Landing, CA. During that time I saw FIVE serious accidentsâ€¦. Thatâ€™s F-I-V-E accidents, four of the five were travel trailersâ€¦ The first was a travel trailer laying on itâ€™s sideâ€¦ the tow vehicle had been â€œtossedâ€ over the side of the mountain, Yep, ... it had flipped over the guard rail and rolled down the side of the mountain.. God help the people that were inside the tow vehicle.. Itâ€™s a long way down at that particular place. One mile farther there was another travel trailer laying on itâ€™s side with the tow vehicle on it's top and still attached to the trailer .... guess what the tow vehicle was.. It was a mid-sized SUV !!! Dumb,Dumb,Dumb !!! There were several firemen and paramedics treating the victims who were scattered around the grass medianâ€¦. Among the victims there were several very small CHILDRENâ€¦ A mile farther along was another accident involving a travel trailerâ€¦ same thing, trailer on itâ€™s side and tow vehicle wrecked. About two miles farther was still another travel trailer accident, like the last one Then, just another 1/2 mile farther was an older model â€œmuscleâ€ car that had lost control and climbed the side of the hill that was the shoulder of the highway ... it made a perfect horseshoe circle on the side of the hill and then returned to the roadway where it â€œlandedâ€ on itâ€™s front suspension system, totally wiping out the tires, linkage, bumper, etcâ€¦. The victim was being treated by paramedics When I asked what happened, every answer was the same ... EXCESSIVE SPEED .... All five accidents were caused by drivers driving well over the posted speed limit. The speed of each one was estimated at 65 to 70 mph The speed limit in California for any vehicle pulling any trailer is 55 mphâ€¦ These vehicles were traveling above the speed limit when they lost controlâ€¦.. I donâ€™t like California for the most part, but when it comes to itâ€™s traffic laws they are way ahead of the rest of the nation. I have said it before and I still say .... that only a complete fool will purposely endanger themselves and their loved ones as well as the innocent person who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time by driving to fast and exceeding the posted speed limits.
