This Trucker Fell Asleep At The Wheel After Falsifying His Logs. A Jury Awarded Him $80 Mi…Usually when a trucker falsifies his logs to drive over his allowable hours of service, then falls asleep at the wheel and gets in an accident, he is the target of the lawsuit. But this trucker was the one bringing the lawsuit. And a jury just awarded him $80 million.

Where the Road Ends: Alaska to Argentina Via the Darien Gap

Where the Road Ends: Alaska to Argentina Via the Darien GapHow four military veterans made history with the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. There’s no wind in your hair or sun on your face when riding your motorcycle through a whiteout snowstorm, especially in November when it’s -16 F on Alaska’s Dalton Highway. No, the only warmth you feel is the electric heat of your Arctic riding suit running off your bike’s battery, especially if it catches fire and melts the inside of its weatherproof fabric, which happened to Wayne Mitchell on the sixth day of his 6-month journey last year. Too bad it wasn’t the worst of his team’s problems that week. Five days later, near Burns Lake, British Columbia, Rich Doering was steering clear of deep roadside snow banks, leery of catching one with the wheel of his sidecar, when a white Chevy Impala tried to pass him,…
