A cool Ohio State Trooper story.
It all started one night heading to Millwood, WV. from Romulus, MI. I received my late start on the run as usual due to lack of freight. I was put in a hurry mode running about 60-62 mph down US 23 south in Ohio. I would say I was about one mile north of Delaware city when I noticed at the last minute a State Trooper with a fellow freight jockey on the right shoulder. There was no way to get over so, I reduced my speed to 50 mph. As I passed by the capture in progress, (Let me note). I don't know if you have ever heard of Ohio State Troopers looking like they screw there hats on tight before but, it is a common saying for exp. east coast and mid west truckers. I looked in my passenger mirror and seen the Troopers hat blow off about 20 feet into the road. If you could see the look on his face,dead at me in my mirror, you just can't help but bust up. I thought for sure he would come after me. Luckily I was not pursued after.
Remember to always speed safe...
