Here is one that i bet pisses truckers off more than anything else. I can certainly relate when I am towing a heavy load. There is heavy traffic in the exit lane, cars backed up for a mile or more. Jagoffs that don’t want to wait in line drive to the very front and merge 6 inches in front of you. If you’re going to cut somebody off in traffic, don’t do it to a rig that weighs 30 ton and takes 300 yards to bring it to a stop. That room in front of me is me keeping safe distance, not me giving you a nice pocket to merge into so you don’t have to wait in line like everybody else

Many years ago I drove for a small landscape company, not semi’s just F450’s. Anyway one week I had one of the 450’s in the shop, I sent the crew out in the other one with the equipment trailer so that left me with a 67 3500 for the day and of course I got a call for a load of rock, figured I’d be okay as long as I left myself enough room to stop,,, so I’v got roughly 14,000 lbs on the dump trailer rolling along about 55 coming up on traffic, road construction and lights, I’m slowing down and everything is good when at least 15 cars dive in front of me, the last car in line is a new Porsche there already stopped and surrounded by other cars, all I could do was get on the brakes until everything started to lock up, let off and do it again and again! I could see the guy in the Porsche’s eyes in his mirror and it’s obvious that no matter what, he’s gonna need some new shorts! I did get it stopped without hitting anything but it was close, maybe a foot or so off his bumper!
