As soon as we stopped there was a cop car behind us. Went thru the usual stuff, explained that it died and we were headed to the house to get another truck to tow it home. He proceeded to inform us that it was illegal to back a vehicle down an onramp. Really? So I should have left it to block traffic? Called a tow truck? I could have it gone by the time they got there....
He gave us some crap, but we finally convinced him that it wasn't a big deal and he even gave us a ride to the house to get the other truck! Sometimes they can see the light in front of them...
