I keep a walkie talkie size CB with me just for those times when I run into a traffic jam and want to know which lane I need to be in. I have accepted that I drive slower than some and faster than others and I slow down when safety demands it. After accepting that I have learned to ignore those that in my younger years would have spurred road rage in me. I am now so much happier when on the road doing my 60 to 67 on the open road and whatever other speeds are safe through construction. If I anger the occasional trucker in a construction I'm sorry but I will not sacrifice safety to make him happy.

I agree with other posters, the difference may be who paid for the rig has bearing on how careful you drive it.

In defense of Truck Drivers, we have been fulltime for 4 years now and I have found that the majority of the Truck Drivers are road friendly. Occasionally you might find one that is crude with little or no judgment, but that does not mean that they are all the same.

I have NEVER seen a Truck speeding through a construction zone . To anger a trucker in a constuction zone would be impossible unless you fell asleep.

After hearing another story about the CB radios I think I might give up on the idea of trying to dig out an old one and put it in the MH.
Thanks for reminding me of that horrible ride in Georgia Dear Husband. I only wish I could have closed my eyes, instead of putting my hand prints in the steering wheel during my white knuckle driving experience between the barricades.
