Major delays and Major temperatures

Brinks Armored Trucks...


The other day when I was on my way to the gym and I noticed a Brinks truck had broken down at a major intersection on the interstate.
Did you know that this causes major delays and congestion?
The broken down Brinks truck must wait for the sheriff/police and another Brinks truck to arrive.
Then the armed guards must transfer all the money/valuables to the "rescue Brinks truck".
It is quite a production.
It makes sense, but it is something that I had never thought about.
I am sure the miles of backed up cars on the interstate had not ever thought about that before either!
The temperature is in the 100s (F) [37.77777 C] every day this week!
The "feels like" temperature is a good 5 degrees hotter!
Stay cool everyone,

I say!

Sorry to hear about your broken knife. A good kitchen knife is an essential. In Japan, they know all about kitchen knives. There is a street dedicated to selling nothing but knives in Tokyo. Its a very personal thing.

Brinks - I think I know that they are security vans.

We are finaly getting around to "normal temps" near 100 here. We have had a cooler wetter summer than normal for sure until now. Stay cool (and hot)

It is UNBEARABLY hot and humid here. It stormed like crazy on Tuesday night, but that didn't even help us cool off.

Here in UK the temperature has just reached 80 and we are melting - can't imagine 100+. HHNT

Wild! I wouldn't of thought of that either.

How could you not be cool!

Yeah, I suppose a broken down armored car would cause many delays for many reasons that you suggest.

Hope you were not stuck behind it at all.

The Brinks Matt (?) robbery here was famous. £26 million or something like that. Anyway, if they break down, they should hand out the money to passerbys as good public relations ... anyway, it sounds way too hot where you are! Hotboy
