I've been following this thread for some time now. It's good to read about the road from an intelligent perspective as opposed to a tv oriented one.
Ice Roads Truckers is being shown for the first time here and I can't believe the stupidity. Watching those jackasses makes my blood boil. There are so many things shown that are just plain wrong never mind illegal. If I'm not mistaken, one jackass even took shots at another truck with a pistol. It looked like a .22 but even with a pellet gun I'd have had that moron off the ice for life.
Few people realise that truck drivers are not all cut from the same dirty sack as those guys.
