I heard the wreck over the CB radio before I even saw it. the CB give me an additional three seconds to respond and plan my next Manoeuvre. I glanced in my rearview mirror and I saw the truck behind me, Brakes smoking with the trailer leaning towards the left. I moved over to the emergency lane to give the driver behind me additional space to correct this skid. always use all the tools available. the CB radio is and should always be considered a safety tool. my radio is always on, and this is clear proof why it will always stay on.
