If you were driving this rig, how would you handle the wrath of the wind?
In this video, shared on TikTok by @harmailsingh_realtor, a trucker battles the powerful winds of the Burlington Skyway.
Located in Ontario, Canada, the Burlington Skyway is one of the busiest bridges in Canada. It’s famous for it’s distinct design and gusty winds. These winds are especially strong in the winter months, and have been measured at reaching up to 60 mph. This can make it challenging for truckers to safely navigate across it, as seen in this video.
One commenter posed the question, “What do you even do in the situation?” to which another answered, “Put the truck at an angle so the wind isn’t so directly perpendicular. But then you might have to take up a little more than one lane. Then you would need to adjust if the wind changes too much. But most people would just wait like this guy did I bet.”
What do you think? Is that how you would’ve reacted to the winds?
