Driver Fails at Low Bridge U-Turn - USA Truck

Swift driver knows what to do: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv-nHmLnF0s Driver attempts a U-Turn instead of backing out from a low bridge situation. This folks is why you don't depend solely on your GPS! Why on earth would you do this to the truck... USA should not only fire his ass, but send him a bill. He blatantly destroyed that equipment. Simple solution would be to G.O.A.L then back up! or call the police for assistance backing.

HD Tractor-trailer wreck and Texas icy slides caught on camera - January 24, 2014

Freezing rain creates treacherous bridge icing from Houston to Beaumont, Texas on Friday, January 24, 2014. **No one was hurt in any of these accidents** Copyright strictly enforced.

A pickup driver, just warned by the photographer about the ice on the bridge, loses control and crashes hard into the barrier. 3.) Dashcam view of the same accident. 4.) An SUV loses control on an icy bridge in Cleveland, Texas just after rounding the curve out of view. The sound of the slide and crash is heard. The tractor-trailer thankfully does not collide with the wrecked SUV. 5.) Dashcam: A pickup nearly slides out of control on I-10 east of Houston, but recovers. 6.)

1959 Kenworth 2 stick shifting practice - Part 1

When filmed this was the 3rd time driving my 1959 CC 925 Kenworth truck. Has a 4 speed main and 3 speed auxilliary transmission and 4.10 gearing. Engine is an NHCT 270 Cummins. Out for a short drive and to practice shifting. Gotta learn by doing. By the time it got restored I could get anywhere I needed to go without a lot of drama. Truck has since gone through a significant restoration. See more recent videos to see some of the changes. And yes I know I sucked in this video but like I said - only the 3rd time I had ever driven it and was out for the specific purpose of improving, started rough and got a little better but not much. Since then much better. 2010 video.

How to shift a 10 speed tractor trailer

*****WHEN GOING DOWN A HILL...you have to be in the proper gear BEFORE you start down the hill...failure to do so may lead to an "Out of control situation" that may cause DEATH!!!***** How to shift a big truck in 3 easy steps, LOL! When I got the silly idea I wanted to drive truck I searched You Tube on how to shift these things and really couldnt find anything good. I tried to make this as simple as I could. The biggest thing is not NOT over complicate this! Just think of it as a 5 speed... Lift the "high / low selecter" and it's another 5 speed. Slowing down is the harder part. Look at your speedometer, add the two numbers together and put it in that gear....Sounds easy? it is.... after a few days. Just remember when slowing down, in a worst case scenerio, if you mess up and can't get it in gear, you to come to a complete stop and start over...just throw your 4-ways on. Don't panic, stay calm, it's just a truck! In a few days you'll be shifting like a pro!!! Hope this helps! If you have any questions, just drop me a line.

Loading The Ole Freightliner - The Hard Way

*Watch In HD* I don't know if this truck had locking diff's or if they were just not able to engage them, but having the rear axles locked-up probably would've saved a lot of headaches this day. I don't know if this truck rolled to the show on this trailer or not, but it looks to me, had everything gone smoothly, that it would've scraped the tanks on the transition from the ramp to the deck anyway. Luckily the bad decision to charge the ramp when there are literally just inches of room for error didn't prove fatal to the driver or that cool old 1971 White/Freightliner cab-over. One smart decision was made there though, notice how the nice polished reefer was moved forward out of the danger zone before all the real drama started. Shot at Truckin' For Kids in Irwindale, California on Sunday October 6th, 2013.

There's A Right Way...And Then There's This Way

*WATCH IN HD* Bad decision? Yes. Lucky? HELL YES! Lucky they only lost a fuel tank and some straps instead of the whole truck. Had the truck not gotten hung-up on it's tank, it would've continued right on over the edge of the trailer and been wrecked. Also lucky the tank was almost empty and diesel fuel is hard to ignite, for if it had, it would've consumed both the truck and half the trailer. This 1971 White/Freightliner will live to race another day. Shot at Truckin' For Kids in Irwindale, California on Sunday October 6th, 2013.
