Check your brakes.

I know this is about a Class A, but it shows how important brakes are on all vehicles. This brake failure cost the driver his life but all the way down hill, he layer on the horn warning others out of the way.

Having to put up with the french almost stopped me. But it was a spectacular ending. Sorry for the deceased driver.

Sad to see this, never know what really happened, we were following a bumper pull rv the other day down a grade and he was riding his brakes all the way down and smoking us out, some folks don't know the proper way to break going down a grade and i guess he never checks his mirrors either, I say slow down and gear down when needed,

How do you know what caused the crash? Unless the exact cause of the crash has been released I wouldn't be jumping to conclusions about what happened. Yes we need to check our brakes but what if brakes wasn't the cause of this crash? What if his accelerator was stuck full open? What if he was a suicidal/homicidal maniac? What if he just wanted to see if he could make the ferry? Point is, we don't know.

What if he was being chased by Roscoe P. Coltrane?
