The Dump Truck Always Has the Right of Way

Coming in to work this morning, there was a big slowdown after the offramp toll plaza.

When this happens, as it does from time to time, it usually means there's an accident on 28. It's pretty annoying, since you're stuck (so if you see a line at the offramp, eat the three bucks-and-twenty and take the Greenway).

This time, though, the cause of the slowdown was at the merge point after the toll plaza, where it goes from three lanes down to one.

A Land Rover Discovery was smooshed up, sideswipe-style, against a big-ass dump truck.

It looked like they were locked together.

I am guessing that Mr. Land Rover tried to zip past the dump truck and... didn't.

I don't care how big your Canyonero is -- if you go up against a dump truck, you are going to lose.

I would like to see a demolition derby done with these veichles. I am pretty sure a fire engine could take out a dumptruck.
