  • its like that a lot bc they run so many dang hours. my dad used to drive trucks, and a good friend of the family's is a driver, so they're not all bad. but there's also a good amount of speed to keep them awake. its crazy how many hours they're on the road, and how many log books they use at one time to get away with it. i drove from ar to cali recently, and had a lot of not fun experiences with crazy truck drivers!

  • As a truckers wife, some trucks do that but i have also seen cars do alot of stupid moves, sp really you shouldn't think it always the trucks fault cause i have seen and been in a road rage accident because of a stupid man in the pick up was drunk and drugged up.

  • Semi wife, Why do two big rigs run side by side down the highway and go UNDER the speed limit backing up traffic for miles???? I have seen this several times on I-75 and I-81, as well as I-10.

  • I hate when 2 semis drive side by side to help regulate traffic flow. I understand the importance of this move- but it always seems to happen right before I pass one! My grandpa was a truck driver his whole life, so I try to cut them some slack...
    but some of them seem a little crazy. Swirving over the center line of the interstate, speeding up and then driving really slow. I sometimes wish they would just pull over and take a nap!

  • My DH is a truck driver and is very respectful to the other cars on the road. We were in my vehicle one day and there was a truckdriver that wouldn't let another car merge on when he had an open lane, and my DH was like, "I hate truck drivers like that; it gives the rest of us a bad name!"

  • You know momof2boys it could be alot of things why trucks are side by side, car in front of them slow, your speed timing got turned down and is high then the other it also depends on the engine that is in that trucks, there are different clutches in the semi like a 15 speed a 18 speed why are you asking me this any way?
