problem #2

  • 30,000 miles


I was on my way to work on the very familiar road that I travel everyday. The speed limit is 45 and since it's a country-windy-road people pretty much go at that speed. As I'm driving the car in front of me was signaling to make a left turn. I applied the break as I approached it.~noticing that my truck was not even slowing down I pressed the break pedal with all my strength but my truck didn't even slowed any, skidded on the road or left any tire-marks behind! I hit the vehicle who was about to make a left turn from behind but it hardly suffer any damage where as my truck was totaled. In checking the road there aren't any markings of anyone trying to stop as it often happens when an accident happens! I believe that the breaks locked on my truck!
