Stuck on a highway. What do you do?

You’re stuck on a highway going nowhere. What do you do? Wait it out, or do something like this?

Three semi-trucks are blocking the road near I-94. This is a similar situation to the chaos in Atlanta. At the heart of almost ever block, were the big trucks.

Maybe in certain weather, trucks should stay off the road until it’s adequately cleared, especially since the State Patrol advises no travel throughout much of the state.

    I made sure I had a full tank this morning just in case I did get stuck. I once used the “For Authorized Vehicles Only” exit on a freeway to escape a jam, but I would NEVER go the wrong way on a highway.

    A little common sense helps. Will I take an Interstate route on my way home today? No, I will not. Slow and steady wins this race.
