    Semi trucks are too big! Remember the Cuban who’s semi truck brakes got locked and the truck killed a lot of people! Cut the trucks in half. Not to one week without a truck causing an accident somewhere

    There's no warning ⚠️ signals about highway status for drivers, whether it's snow, ice, or wet road so ppl can reduce speeds.

    Texas ppl are terrible drivers in snow. You would think that when faced with unexpected or unusual circumstances ppl would be extra cautious but nope, not in Texas. They think their pick up trucks are rockets and so they will try to fly it. Lack of common sense.

    Pileup happened on the toll way lanes of I-35W Southbound in Ft Worth - where construction was completed a few years ago. Needless to say it's an incredibly stupid design where the 'free' lanes of I-35W are bottlenecked on purpose in order to entice people to take this tollway, and was funded for-profit by a foreign country (yeah, america: for sale). The speed limit is 75mph on this tollway and was urged/pushed by the foreign country's agreement even though there were safety concerns. Signage is ambiguous also to get people to take the toll way 'accidentally.' This is an American interstate, and how a foreign country was able to push their for-profit agenda and how it was accepted by bean-counting bribed politicians is shameful.

Idiots like this are always tailgating me on the freeways. Sorry. You lose. You will never tailgate anyone ever again CAUSE YOU ARE DEAD. It sucks for the orphans who were born to idiot parents.

    the PROBLEM is people speeding. ICY CONDITIONS mean you drive slower than the speed limit. You are NOT going to get where you are going fast. YOU can not drive 60 in bad weather. Its sad to see this because NOBODY was able to get anywhere and people lost their lives trying to get there quick.

    All that was required is for drivers to SLOWDOWN when there is uncertainty ahead.Unfortunately, people hit the gas pedal/SPEEDUP when approaching a stopsign in North Texas,even when vehicles ahead STOP with the red glare of brake lights ahead. That is scary.

    It seems to me, if you're at the end of a continuing pileup, if possible, your best bet for survival is to exit vehicle and move as far forward as possible. Wouldn't it be possible to set a temperature controlled caution light to slow down on bridges and overpasses of major highways?
