By the way, more and more trucks are equipped with video recorders, and more and more trucking companies are suing car drivers for damage. You DO carry enough insurance for a $125,000 truck, a $50,000 trailer, and a $500,000 load, plus down time, right?
It makes no difference how big or small you are there are a percentage of people out there that weave in and out driving too fast that care less if they cut you off. I have noticed very aggressive drivers in and around some towns like Columbus Ohio...I hate driving in Columbus! My son-in-law who works in Columbus tells me that it is a way of life for Columbus drivers

On our way to the Good Sam rally in Pheonix last year, we found, invariably, as we traveled through California, that if I looked in the right mirror and saw a car merging, he would pass me on the right, fifty yards after the merge lane ran out. It has been said many times, you just can't cure stupid.

I always yield to the law of gross tonnage when merging, following or passing.

Far too many drivers don't know the rules of the road, especally when it comes to changing lanes. I have actually heard drivers say that when changing lanes the guy already in the lane must yield to the person changing lanes. Like airplane pilots, I wish drivers had to attend refresher training every few years.

Refresher training would be a good thing to be sure. Personally I'd settle for correcting wrong answers on the drivers test the. First time.
-
I was with someone who barely passed the test, missing 30% of the questions. They were given their license without even being told what the 30% of the things they were wrong about were. So now they will go through the rest of their life believing they are doing a bunch of things right simply because no one explained it at the beginning.

I went to a High School graduation ceremony last week and the majority of clueless people took up two parking spaces. They would leave about six feet between cars.
You know, if they don't know how to park they darn sure aren't going to know how to drive!!!
