I've done worse - Slow and Easy.

by Bruce Bergman

When you know you're pushing the envelope, you just have to slow down and get there when you get there.

Leave a half-mile to get stopped, pay attention to whether that green light ahead is fresh or stale, etc.

You feel the trailer start to get wiggly and Slow Down, not Speed Up. Just tow dollied an Exploder tail-first with my C-3500 (wasn't worth the effort to drop the driveshaft) and you had to slow down whenever it changed from concrete to asphalt pavement.

Concrete that had been profile-ground was best, it has those nice sipe grooves to track against.
