Re: shed some light on this matter

I believe that if it was dark enough for the trailer to be hid, then it
was
dark enough to have his head lights on. There for he must drive within the
light from the head lights. I can't believe that he didn't see the trailer
unless he had something else distracting him of too much speed
or was he talking on a cell phone or finding papers. Most drivers would
have
seen this trailer.
Illegially parked or not this trailer didn't move into his lane, he hit it.

Jurydoctor,

If all three trailers where parked unlawfuly,the tractor operatetors are
responceable for the out come. A hazard reflector traingle should have been
placed at a distance equal to the posted speed limit (in feet) plus the
stoping distance required (in feet) for a vehicle traveling at the posted
speed limit. Thats the farthest point. Also must go towards the back of the
object.

For example, a vechile traveling at the posted speed limit of 40mph requires

125 feet to stop. The most distance of an inmoveable object indacater should
be place at a distance of 165ft.
(125 feet + 40 feet = 165 feet ).
BUT ! IF Inmoveable object indacaters are limited,the farthest should be
place in a pattern from right to left at 50 feet,than 20 feet,and at the
back and front of the object,indacateing a hazard to the lane of travel

Our tractor trailers in Alaska have to have reflective tape on them,360
degrees.

One thing to remmber ! No matter what lies in the lane ahead,when you
leave your lane you are
responceable !
