  1. No doubt it was in a construction zone where the seemingly endless construction barriers make the shoulders the width of a piece of paper. When will the construction ever end? They’ve been working on 95 from 40 to Fayetteville for a decade.

  2. Anyone have an idea on if that was a company truck or an owner operator? I agree that this construction zone is horrible for everyone, especially truckers. There’s no room for them to move at all, so if there’s something they need to avoid, they’re screwed. Add the fools that frequent 95 that couldn’t drive to save their own skin, and you have a nasty combo. It’s bad enough a few truckers I know refuse to take 95, they’d rather lose time than lose their truck.
