Exclamation Amazing video of violent trailer sway and recovery!

Amazing video apparently taken on one of those long, long bridges. Driver manages to recover. Are those chains slapping the load? Wow.

It seems I love the mountains and deserts more than my friends do. I sure miss them!

I'll bet that driver had to launder his jockey shorts at his next stop.

No doubt. I'm amazed that his load stayed on after that.
