Re: “Last Chance

This article is so off base it is not funny. Plain and simple trucks are not the main vehicle to cause an accident. Most accidents are caused by cars, I ask before you wrote this article did you think to take a ride in a truck and see for yourself how we are treated by cars? Constantly getting cut off, changing lanes in front of use without using a blinker. You probably don't realize as I didn't see it in the article, but semi truck drivers have to go through a several week training process just to get the a class A license. Then after the license is obtained, you have to maintain a medical card that is renewed every two years, and lastly we are constantly monitored by the Dot making sure things are up and up. I ask you to contact OOIDA they can give you a lot of insight.

Lastly don't forget these big bad scarey trucks haul most of the crap we buy. Plain and simple you don't like trucks stop buying crap. These men and women spend countless hours on the road so you can have that crap. Maybe next time wave at them and thank a trucker, they are not as scarey as they seem.

Re: “Last Chance

And if this doesn't solve the problem, driverless trucks will, soon... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oqfodY2Lz…
