Y'all missed

So I went to the house at lunch so I could get some shorts for gym use after work. On the way at about 75MPH I see a truck tire bouncing down the shoulder coming my way with a closing velocity of about 100MPH Y'all missed me though and thankfully it seemed everyone behind me came through clean despite the tire crossing 4 lanes behind me.

Re: Y'all missed

how was it going so fast in the opposite direction

pretty scary situation. was it attached to a wheel still or just the tire? maybe it was just the retread that came off (still don't wanna get hit by that)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Trick question, sheep do not go over 55mph

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Y'all missed

I looked around but saw no crashes. Figured a truck with dual wheels lost one. Oh and 100MPH closing velocity was based on a 25MPH tire speed (probably a bit higher).

So for the French the closing speed will be 20MPH followed by -20MPH as the flock passes
