Turning a flat into a round ... of applause

Like many stranded motorists, Brad Viets and his wife were glad to have ITD’s Incident Response vehicle patrolling Interstate 84.

Viets called ITD recently to express his thanks and appreciation to Jim Cherry for coming to the rescue. Cherry changed a flat tire on the Viets vehicle Oct. 17. Brad and Dee were westbound on the Interstate between Cloverdale and Eagle on their way to baby sit grandchildren when their car had a flat tire.

The retirees were very complimentary of the roadside assistance program and of Cherry’s commitment to helping motorists. Mr. Viets called the service “a great use of taxpayer funds – a wonderful service to commuters and a great blessing."
