I's a fact you can stop faster than a tractor/trailer. You don't see many cars ect. ramming a big rig in the rear. Watch the brakelights!

I let the DH drive, then tilt back the copilot seat and take a nap. This way we are both more comfy.

Did the Mobile tunnel this a.m. - Yes, lots of horns; didn't see any break morons but I'm sure they are out there. Currently in Tallahassee for the night. Tomorrow Fort Myers... Tons of great ideas and advice on this post. Thanks again... R4

Whatever speed is comfortable for me is what I drive, no matter what speed everyone else wants to. I always leave a lot of room in front (10 vehicle lengths is my goal). I use a GPS with lane warnings and try to make the lane shift far ahead. I think the key is relax, get through the city, and then stop and unwind.
I agree 100% with this post. I figure my job is to stay between the lines and drive my coach and try not to worry about what everyone else is doing. The key is to drive your rig the speed you are comfortable with and leave plenty of room in front.
