Grandpa its time to hang up the keys! Before you kill yourself or anybody else. I really can't add anything to the excellent comments posted except.
Are you really that stupid? And do you think the RV drivers and truck drivers are dumb enough to believe that you think the truck driver is wrong?
It is all about courtesy and helping the other guy out when he gets in a bind. Get with the program or get off the road!!

I'm beginning to think this is a troll just trying to get a reaction. No one can be that dense. And God help us if they are.

HuffyPuffy.
My guess is that maybe, one percent on here that have responded to you may have ever been a truck driver. One thing we all have in common though is we all have RV's. Donut lover who is a retired police officer has tried to explain the reasoning for what 95% of the people have been trying to have you understand. The sad part is, no matter what anyone says, it seems that you will never understand. I hope that someday your perceived attitude of no matter what, I am always right does not cause an accident. As others have mentioned, when a loved one or someone else that you killed because you were "in the right", they are still dead. If that ever happens, I pray that you will be able to live with yourself. For me, I will always show the upper hand and be courteous to other drivers "even" if I am in the right and they are in the wrong.

You don't see it I know. I am a truck driver who drives doubles and triples for a big similar company every day. Yes when he realized he couldn't go around you and you weren't going to give ( as common courtesy you should have)he should've slowed down and made preparations for someone else to let him in.
His mistake caused you to make many more mistakes ,slowing down to 45 !! then speeding up to try to chase him down to get his number causing the finger incident all of it could've been avoided but as many have said and you have refused to see. sadly i'm worried not much will change. Drive with the traffic speed ( sometimes NOT the speed limit .. driving slower you are a big hazard .. More so than speeders and if you can't or refuse to ( you were ok with speeding up / changing lanes to get the truck number ) then ok at least put on the aware and courteous hat . try not to be dead right. The video does remind me to not trust the public .. Part of my basic training years ago ��
The finger incident was when he cut me off and didn't like my horn letting him know he wasn't clear yet. I didn't flash my lights to tell him it's clear.

I ended up slowing down after hitting my brakes changing lanes once the car on my left passed. I slowed down more than expected and did catch up carefully but did got a little over the posted speed but not passing anyone. The driver didn't give more trouble as my wife took pictures. Maybe he knew what he did was wrong, maybe not.

I don't know how driving slower in the right lane is a hazard as we know many slower vehicles are preferred to be in that lane and anyone who has a driver license knows that. My motorhome is slow and that's where I was and belonged. If he was a professional truck driver he should of know where he belong and his speed also.

You just don't get it.

Why didn't you slow up a little and let the truck over?

Makes me glad I'm on the other side of the country.

Mad Truck Driver, What do you think?

Just curious what are the five beeping noise once the truck was beside you? Every so often there was a beep.
