A truck pushing a disabled car. At over 70mph. No tire between. Just bumper to bumper.

worst thing I ever saw on the e-way (I-69 just N of Lansing) was a pickup pulling a car trailer with a full size van on it..van had nothing but a come-a-long hooked on the front bumper to keep it on the trailer...I passed it, hung there for a sec looking at that, and then got way ahead of it...

Hey, I want to save on gas, if I can merge on the e-way and find someone to push me I'll just throw it neutral and enjoy the ride until my exit.

So i was dead in the water in the middle lane, dome guy with a superduty pulled up right behind me, motioned he was going to push, i pushed in the clutch, he got me rolling and as i was coasting off to the side i popped the clutch and pulled right out behind him he looked over at me like WTF?
