Home Up


On Feb. 27, 2007 I narrowly missed an accident with a ladder on the Florida Turnpike just north of SW 152 St.   A roofer lost his extension ladder when the string it was tied with broke.   The ladder ended up across 3 lanes of traffic that was going 60-75 MPH.  A few vehicles hit it.  I used my vehicle's lights and strobes to stop traffic while I moved the ladder.
