Those people are driving too fast for conditions. 

The ones piling in STILL going too fast seeing all the fucking calamity are grossly negligent.

Sorry, just totally can't put this on the guy with the truck.

A hill, icy road conditions, previous accidents with required cone distance, and he admits he knows they are speeding. He is fucking prick of the highest order. IMHO.

Yup.

The neighborhood autist harassing these guys that are trying to do a damn job are not helping.

Sure would be unfortunate if that guy had a cable outage and they told him "sorry, we can't fix it until spring when the weather improves".

Bullshit, unless there are cones before the hill, all those accidents are COMPLETELY his fault.

How about not driving too fast for the conditions? "Waa WAaa its not my fault" How about if you can't fucking stop in time, you're going too fast.




Do you need the government to put extra cones out for you, or are you capable of thinking for yourself and how fast you are driving?

I'm not sure how any of that falls on the Comcast guy.

I hate Comcast as much as anyone (seriously they absolutely SUCK!!) and the repair dude not putting some warning on the other side of the blind hill is pretty stupid but honestly, he isn't going to give a shit until it fucks up his truck.

It's hard to find any sympathetic characters in this video though. From the autist filming it to the jackass in that chevy truck at the end, assholes everywhere.

LOL, says the guy in Texas. 

I've been driving in Colorado snow since I had a learners' permit.   I've personally sat on 2 juries that unanimously attributed fault to people driving too fast for conditions in the ice road.   

Even in the few remaining states that still apply the sudden emergency doctrine, icy roads do not qualify.    The courts say, to paraphrase,  "Look, you have been driving in the ice, you know there's ice, you can't say 'oh shit, ice!' to justify your failure to slow down for conditions, and driving for conditions means being able to stop in a reasonable distance if you come upon an obstruction"
Link Posted: 12/14/2016 1:53:42 AM EST
Blame to go around, but the comcast drivers were putting their lives and trucks at risk for no reason other then blind adherence to their protocol. They should have parked further down the road and/or set out more cones further up the hill.

Drivers shoudl have adapted to shitty conditions, comcast should have adapted to shitty drivers.

More cones would not have worked. If anything it would have made things worse.

More set out right by the truck wouldn't have helped, no, but setting some up at the crest of the hill might of. You're right though, the cones aren't going to fix the problem.

They were working on that poll because some truck managed to wax the box before comcast even showed up. Obviously the road/drivers/weather are a shitty combination and those cones won't stop them. I wouldn't have wanted to be in the bucket of that truck with cars all over the place like that. Call the cops and wait patiently for a cruiser to show up. Blue lights at the crest of that hill and I guarantee people will slow right the fuck down.

Hypothetically speaking what if the Comcast truck wasn't there and that school bus was stopped at the bottom of the hill letting little Billy and Suzie off?

Still don't think the drivers would be held responsible for their shit driving?

Cones at the crest probably would have just caused head-ons instead.

And FUCK getting in that bucket in this scenario.

Worked a lot of incidents in traffic and knowing how people drive we always placed warnings well in advance of the incident.   Still had vehicles coming in hot and even plowing through cones and flare patterns.  And had quite a few secondary collisions.

Bad drivers + bad conditions + bad judgement = this video.

eta And WTF is that 1 cone for every 10mph speed limit bull shit?   That is more bad in the equation.

I can't say whether or not the Comcast guy had his taper starting far enough back to meet the letter of the law.   Impossible to tell since most of those zones are defined by speed limit and I didn't see a speed limit sign on that vid.   But almost all of those folks were fucking SCREAMING in snowy/icy weather.   The ones that weren't were able to slow down and deal with the obstruction in a safe manner.  

Moving the cones back another hundred feet would have just had the fuckups occurring at that point.    Looked to me to be about 500 feet to the crest of the hill... had he put the cones there those cheese-dicks would have been ripping into the other lane and hitting traffic coming the other way head-on.  

Respectfully, I think OP has been spending too much time with the Reddit liberals.  Too many folks with the attitude that "Its your job to protect me from my negligent driving SIR!"     People want and need nannies I guess.

Drivers were driving too fast and the Comcast guys were too stupid to exercise good judgement after what they were doing clearly wasn't working.

Because they are fully prepared to blame someone else for their stupidity. You should read the comments on Youtube, what a bunch of fucking idiots. HALF the posted speed limit for shit conditions like that otherwise you're taking the risk, blame yourself.

Regarding that snippet, just realize that the inevitable result of that mindset is that "we're sorry, Comcast does not send out repair crews during inclement weather.  Your cable will be fixed on the next available sunny day..."

Or, perhaps,  "Dear public utilities commission, we're applying for a 23% increase in our approved fee structure for residential cable and internet services to offset the costs of adding two complete flagging crews to every single work crew so that we can better protect the community's drivers from their own stupidity."
