    Sorry bout that,


    1. In my opinion a driver of a big rig truck trying to run you off the road is worthy of getting his ass shot off!
    2. The big rigs are lethal weapons rolling down the freeways, and everyday, these truck drivers flip out and go road rage on innocent people like myself, it has happened to me no less than two times in less than a year.
    3. I think when they do that, I should be legally able to shoot them bastards in the head! :eek:
    4. I will describe both inccidents after awhile.
    5. Here's a youtube link showing what I'm refering too:[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Drs0Ir_KCvE&feature=related[/ame]

    Why not just let him pass?

    You notice in the video, the car driver speeds up when the truck tries to pass.

    How many times do you think he did that BEFORE he shot the video?

    A truck passing you IS NOT a reminder that you are going too slow.



    You are not a policeman, it is not your job to control the speed of other motorists.


    If you want to poke, by all means, poke.

    But if a truck is going faster than you are, let him pass, especially on two lane roads.

    A truck must travel at or above the posted speed limit to pass on two lane safely...at seventy plus feet long, a trucker wants to be in the opposing lane as short a time as possible.

    Some people attribute this to aggressiveness, but it isn't.

    Truckers know that the speed you are traveling is the speed you feel comfortable...even if you accelerate for awhile, ordinarily you will revert to your "comfortable speed" as soon as you stop consciously concentrating on your speed.

    Bottom line, it behooves a motorist to facilitate a trucks passing instead of inhibiting it.

    By the way, it is illegal to increase speed while being passed (overtaken)...so both drivers in the video were in the wrong.

    Most big rig drivers are good drivers. A few are jerks.

    sorry bout that,


    1. I see no one here's got a clue as to what I'm taking about.
    2. A big rig, is a lethal weapon.:evil:
    3. Most people are just too stupid to know this.:evil:
    4. The video I posted was just an example, the rig driver had no reason to ride up on that guys ass end.
    5. He was trying to intemidate the driver of the car.
    6. Which I'm sure it worked.
    7. What this trucker was doing should be illegal, and people with the right to carry, should be able to legally open fire on these truckers doing this.:evil:

    There are plenty of examples of truckers road rage, but there are just as many excellent truck drivers out there.
    I have had a few run ins with asshole truckers, but most of them are proffessionls who just want to do their job and not get hassled by 4wheelers (cars).

    I have listened to my CB many times and you can hear these guys complaining about the terrible drivers out there that do just as much to cause problems as the truckers do, if not worse. One of my best friends is a trucker and he has told me many ugly stories....

    Me myself... I give them all the road they want.
