Apparitions, ghosts or a trick of the eyes. Whether you believe or not, these roads have an unearthly reputation. We combed through reports of haunted highways to bring you 5 of the spookiest. Keep reading, if you dare!
The legend of Kelly Road says that animals who cross this section of the road in Ohioville, Pennsylvania turn rabid and start to act in a crazed and aggressive manner. Beware of animals you run into on this stretch of haunted highway.
But every foray into the occupied territories of Centretown meant grappling with the fact that a key organizers of the convoy have identified with QAnon and made various disparaging and odious remarks.
Conservative politicians in this country drool at the idea of commanding such a broad base of supporters who have enveloped themselves in a cocoon of misinformation. Also: The convoy has raised $10 million.
Early in the game, protagonist Johnny Klebitz will usually ride alongside several members of the Lost, led by chapter leader Billy Grey. The player is required to stay close to the group as they ride to their destination. When riding, every minute or so the Lost MC logo will appear in the convoy. The player can move their bike into the logo and stay there for a few seconds to have their health and bike health restored. If the player already has full health then they will receive body armor instead. The player can hold conversations with the other members. If Johnny rides ahead of the group, Billy will shout at Johnny and order him to get back into formation.
Later in the game following Billy's arrest, Johnny as the new chapter president will lead the convoy. This operates the same as following except that any bikers that the player leads will follow Johnny instead. If they fall too far behind they will respawn closer to Johnny again.
When either leading or following a convoy during certain missions, Johnny may suggest that the group "drop the hammer", dispersing the convoy and challenging the other riders to a race to their destination. The outcome of this (whether Johnny wins the race or loses) has no effect on the mission.
The convoy is part of a larger movement of conservative truckers that began in Canada. Originally formed in protest of COVID-19-related mandates, the convoys soon spread to other countries, including the U.S., where they have caused traffic disruptions in cities around the world.
A number of these convoys attempted to make their way to the nation's capital in order to protest. The main group now remaining on the outskirts of the city is known as the "People's Convoy," which traveled to the East Coast in a cross-country journey from California, adding protesters along the way.
The truckers seem to honk at the bystanders as they go by. The convoy also appeared to have a police escort, as at least four cars from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) were seen following the truckers.
The anger directed at the conservative-leaning convoy seems to fall in line with the political makeup of the nation's capital, which leans heavily liberal. A poll from the Pew Research Center found that 56 percent of adults within the D.C. metropolitan area identified as Democratic or left-leaning, with only 28 percent saying that were Republicans or right-leaning.
On average, as many as 900 vehicles operated around the clock. They usually operated in convoys consisting of at least five trucks with Jeep escorts in front and back, although individual trucks sometimes made the run.
MTB officers immediately established traffic-control points (TCPs) that operated around the clock at principal intersections and in towns. The job of TCP personnel was to regulate convoys or any other vehicles, civilian or military, that used the dedicated highway and to ensure that Red Ball convoys had the right-of-way in all cases. TCP troops kept daily records of the arrival times of passing convoys and logged their destinations, weights, and the classes of supplies that they carried. TCP personnel also were required to have maps of alternate routes for non-Red Ball vehicles, as well as maps of the Red Ball route that showed the location of refueling points and maintenance shops for legitimate convoys and vehicles.
One sympathises with the deputy governor, his boss, the government and people of Nasarawa state, the Police and families of the deceaseds over the convoy attack. However, it appears the policemen took things for granted. And one wonders why they were not wearing bullet-proof jackets. I believe that the appropriate authorities would have learnt some lessons from this ugly incident and that they are taking needed actions to avoid/mitigate similar incidents in future. It is noteworthy that the Nasarawa state police command is taking necessary measures to curb all forms of criminality on this road.
Dean was barrelling along Route 46 at an estimated 85mph when Donald Turnupseed, a young student from California Polytechnic State University, driving a Ford Tudor, decided to make a sudden turn on to Route 41. The impact sent the Ford almost 40 feet down the road and ejected Wütherich from the Porsche. Dean was pronounced dead on arrival at the Paso Robles War Memorial hospital at 6.20pm.

ADRIAN COWELL: The mountains of eastern Burma have been cursed by war and cursed by opium so that today their Shan people are caught in a vicious trap. It'sa trap corrupted by opium and its derivatives: morphine and heroin. And it's bloodied by one of the cruelest tyrannies on earth.For decades I've watched the world's largesttraffic in narcotics and Burma's civil war feed oneach other until they've become monsters ofdestruction.
ANNOUNCER: Through the years of civil war, Cowellfollowed the train of the heroin convoys out of Burmato Thailand and found his way into the mountainfortress of the man who controlled the drug trade.Tonight on FRONTLINE, an adventure of epic scale, "The Opium Kings."
ADRIAN COWELL: The only sure way to control and taxnarcotics is in the field. But as there were millionsof fields, the guerrillas had decided instead to taxthe convoys which exported the opium. These convoyshad originally been escorted by revolutionaries likethe ones we'd filmed 10 years before, but many hadsince been bribed to go over to the Burmesegovernment. In return for a government license totrade opium, the ex-revolutionaries worked as amilitia for the Burmese, adding confusion to thisstory by switching from side to side.
The most powerful of the militia leaders was Lo Hsin Han, the famous king of opium. The revolutionaries' aim was to capture one of the king of opium's giant convoys which would soon come up from Thailand to collect the new opium harvest. Its capture would change the balance of power in the opium traffic. The first poppies were already in flower when the convoyset out. Shan spies counted 700 mules and also filmedfor us. To prevent the convoy being reinforced bytruck, the roads were blown.
The mules are very hard to capture because they can divert onto any side track and that's exactly what happened. We were with the revolutionaries waiting inambush as the convoy came up this valley, but theconvoy turned suddenly and attacked anotherrevolutionary unit blocking their escape on the otherside of the mountain.
ADRIAN COWELL: The booty was like a taunt from thegods: underpants, underpants with the ironic brandname James Bond 007. The film unit's share was two Dr.West toothbrushes. So the first campaign against theconvoys came to its inglorious but prophetic end.[on-camera] Basically, a mule convoy cannot movefaster than a man. You move at about the same pace asthe soldiers moving against you. So if you've gotforces here and a mule convoy going down there, thatconvoy cannot get around these soldiers. So what dothey do? At the time that this convoy moves that way,they bring another convoy the other way, yes? Thenthey launch other convoys in different directions, andthese are feints. You don't know which convoy actuallyhas opium on it. That was extremely sophisticated andI don't think I've heard of any other sort of warfareof this sort, that I saw there. This is old Chinesetactics. And of course, many of the senior officerswere officers who had been trained in nationalistChinese military academies.
ADRIAN COWELL: Over the coming weeks, the debate would resolve into two clearly defined arguments. LesterWolff, Joe Nellis, and their committee wanted to buyup Shan opium, as the first stage to negotiating anend to its cultivation. But Peter Bourne and hisgovernment departments were against negotiations. Theywanted to give the Burmese army airplanes to attackShan convoys. The debate continued until the WhiteHouse took its all too predictable decision to theCongress. 041b061a72
