Watch what happens when a truck carrying a load of apparently unsecured propane cylinders runs into the back of a bus. Remember, propane in cylinders is stored at fairly high pressure. In the first few seconds of the video, you see the truck passing the car filming the event. There's a bus in the center lane that appears to cut in front of the propane truck, but that's not visible on camera. What happens next is frightening.

    So why is there a trend to make American trucking more like Europe ?

    This is why we have propaganda. Has nothing to do with rules it has to do with Brains

    Rules are like laws they are only good IF they are followed. This is also in a foreign country not here, in the USA. Just in case you did not know why wasn't the country it happened in also reported on.
