Glad I wasn't riding yesterday

On my way home in the cage going about 75 this verizon van drops a ladder in the middle lane of I 95(east coasters know what I am talkin about) in rush hour traffic about 400 feet in front of me. Holy Sh-t Cars on both sides and I am gaining on this sliding 6 foot A frame ladder fast. Luckily my VW golf is small,the ladder slide to the right side of the lane and the guy next to me gave me some room to squeze by. The Van starts to pull over then says F it and keeps on cruising. I can't imagine the traffic jam that caused. Verizon be DAMNED

Sincerely Your "Squidly" VA rider

Did anyone get out and snagged the ladder. They're not cheap.

this is good........I saw one on the side of the road today...after they get hit a couple times they look like a big wire twist tie......I'm thinking these companies don't teach the techs to tie down the ladders, or they are just brain dead.
