    I live in a closed state border state. As a trucker if I get sick outside the state somebody, somewhere will have to make a decision if it was an emergency. If they decide it wasn’t an emergency they don’t pay anything. strives to maintain an open forum for reader opinions. Click here to read our comment policy.
