    Angle that bad boy, same as ya brought it in, in the turning lane pictured. Start on the outside lefthand edge, using every bit of room ya can, & swing to the right. Don’t be pussyfootin’ it either, unless ya wanna be stuck with yer driving wheels up in the air, another highly embarrassing situation. :)

    Yes, I’ve drove longhaul coast-to-coast, not the easiest way to make a living. Without truckers, America stops. Longhaul truckers are the backbone of the American way of life, & each one of them should make at least $1500 a week, after taxes. Most don’t unless they own the truck.

    Don’t blame it on the design of the trailer. Nothing is wrong with the design of it. Car Toters must be low to the ground due to the top heaviness. The driver should have known better than to attempt this move.

    Isn’t there a hydraulic cyl. that can be used to raise and lower the trailer portion at the hitch?
    Thus allowing driver to move the rig off high center.

    What’s up with car carriers? One overturned in Jacksonville Florida yesterday.

    Thanks, I wondered on the way home last night what was going on here. I was able to get around him as he was not as far out into the road as this picture shows, when I came by. But, he sure looked in some kind of trouble.

    They are low to the road for clearance overhead. This is a common problem with these trailers. Looks brand new so maybe he/she will remember….

    This tractor/trailer configuration looks poorly designed.
