On the evening of 3/11/2011 one of Clark Freight Lines trucks, truck #R53958 with a Pasadena tag #327950 held traffic back to 5 to 10 miles an hour for approximately 15 miles. This happened where the construction starts between Ardmore & the Texas line. I was behind the truck along with about 40 other vehicles. No one knew what was going on until we got to the end of the one lane construction & this truck along with another truck suddenly took off @ about 75 miles an hour. I noticed the traffic on the opposite side in the construction site coming towards us was traveling the 60 mph speed limit with no problems & we were coasting. In fact most ot the time I didn't have my foot on the gas I just coasted until I had to brake. I know that this truck did it because I was right behing him. There should be a law against this & I plan to find out from the highway patrol what needs to be done if this happens again.
Because of this prank I missed my grandsons Karate tournament and had to explain that some jerk had kept the traffic held back so I couldn't get there in time.
