Colby's comment "So you think you can back up a big rig. Drivers going on 2 miles now." The rig is 320 feet long and weighs over 1,000,000 pounds.
It sounds like someone took a wrong turn and nobody caught it for a while.
Here is an example of a unit receiving the remote signals and controlling the hydraulics that steer the trailer. The driver is keeping just the front dolly in line. But that dolly is short and 15-foot wide, so evidently it is still a little tricky.
One comment worth noting is the response to the observation "I bet this job pays well.":
Oh yes it does. That trailer is worth 3 million and after about 3 or 4 loads the trailer is paid off.
Evidently sometimes you can get a permit to block the road only at night.
