Wed, 1/29 @ 9:24AM – I-65 northbound on ramp at AL-119

Wed, 1/29 @ 9:24AM - I-65 northbound on ramp at AL-119. While Boris fields a phone call, I take a picture of the on-ramp. Several cars try to make it up and are unsuccessful while I am waiting. The black car in this picture does not make it and is either currently backing up or about to back up all the way back down. We talk to the driver and recommend he take Hwy 31 as the gradients are shallower and I-65 is parking lot just beyond the hills in this picture. One pick-up truck does makes it almost all the way up the ramp before spinning out. He then puts it in reverse and goes back down the ramp a small distance to a well-placed 3 foot diameter pile of dirt that somebody has bought, opened and dumped onto the ramp near the top. This gives the truck traction to accelerate with enough momentum to coast up the rest of the hill. We cannot figure out how the tractor-trailer ended up in this position.
