We followed this truck around the 275 loop, which surrounds Cincinnati. Then we noticed the little "Radioactive" label on the back of the truck, indicating that the truck is carrying radioactive cargo.
No, I don't have anything against truck drivers. Yes, I fully understand that everything I buy in stores is delivered to those stores via trucks. The whole purpose of the video was to show that car drivers are sharing the road with semis, some of which can potentially be carrying materials such as radioactive medical waste, corrosive materials and explosive substances.
Fortunately the driver of this truck was doing everything as he should have. Other drivers aren't as fortunate. Check out this semi on its' side, recorded just a few miles from where the radioactive cargo truck was recorded: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4hr6...
In the video of the semi on its' side I don't even think it was totally the drivers' fault. I don't think he was speeding around the curve. I think in his case it was a matter of improper loading at the originating warehouse.
