Today at work, I'm driving a US Department of Transportation registered vehicle with a lot of chemicals that can be dangerous to people, or the environment.
I was in New Castle, and to those who know the area, I was driving East on US Highway 36, just North of Memorial Park and I was about to take the ramp onto SR 3. That's when I hit the brakes and I realize ..... nothing happened. I'm going 55 MPH coming up to the ramp, and I'm not slowing down .... at all. I immediately knew if I tried to take the turn I was going to tip over the top heavy truck, spilling chemicals all over the place. The Environmental Protection Agency would have been all over it, and they would have had to have dug up a ton of soil trying to keep it out of the ground water ..... what a mess.
So I immediately checked my mirror and I knew it was going to be close, but I had to swerve back into traffic in a hurry. I didn't hit anything, or anyone. I bet the people behind me were calling me all sorts of names having no idea why I did that.
Needless to say, it scared the living **** out of me.
