We were waiting for some pedestrian traffic to clear before turning on to West Peachtree this morning when an 18-wheel tanker truck blew through a yellow light headed West on North Ave. The driver began compression braking just before the truck passed us, and then roared on through the intersection. It was loud.
I said “woah”. You said “What was that!” Then, sounding a little awestruck, you answered your own question: “That was a Thunder Truck.”
