    Question…Are the trucking companies required to pay for repairs if the truck driver is at fault?

    • CRAZY RIDER says:

      driver not at fault this time one of the poles was leaning into the road and i knew as soon as a truck that was 10 foot or higher went by heading east and stayed on its side of the road it would hit the pole

    I see W&E has put down yet another layer of asphalt along there.

    The pole fell asleep while on duty…
