    Both trucks should have just kept going and let the next ruck shove the car out of the way. eventually a truck would push it out of the tunnel.
    Every tunnel I've ever driven through had numerous very clear signs saying stay in lane even tunnels with 1 way traffic has do not change lane signs.
    People who drive like the person in the car have no business driving
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    The driver was still a little dizzy, which influenced his judgement. He had fallen off of a ladder a couple days ago, while working with a friend.

    Well, you can't fool him with that double white line.

    Seriously, I am glad they survived. Not that they deserved it.

    I wonder if it was worth the risking their life to get to their destination one minute sooner?

    What they never seem to realize is if a truck is traveling at 10 below the posted and you are traveling at 10 above the posted any you are both going tot the same destination 500 miles away, the truck will usually beat you there by a large margin
