over 6 year period but like i said my son was
in a bad accident on his dirtbike and has
been in the hospital for past 4 weeks i have

ok well, your plea from charity aside, if you
keep driving a truck with no brakes, to the
point you have to shift into neutral and
thrown the emergency brakes on, you are
going to put yourself or someone else in the
hospital all over again. It doesn't matter how
desperate you are, you should never drive a
vehicle that is this big a safety menace.

First of all you should not even be thinking about driving a vehicle that has no brakes. You will do your Son no good lying in the hospital bed next to him or dead! Not to mention the damage you can cause others and leave yourself open to a hefty lawsuit that your insurance is inadequate to cover!! I would strongly recommend either using public transportation, renting a vehicle, or borrowing a vehicle until you can get yours fixed!! Any money spent will be well worth it in the end. Please don't take the attitude of "it'll never happen to me". Because what you're doing is flirting with disaster!! Please, for your sake, your Son's sake, and the people whom you'll be crashing into's sake, find another mode of transportation until your truck is fixed. Even a bicycle would be safer (no, I'm not trying to be funny)!! HTH. -Jim
