Far too many of these situations you are speaking of stem from inconsiderate four wheelers then they do trucks.

    tailgaiting, and sweeping into the fast lane to "maintain your speed" 20 under the limit, cutting off cars happens far more often than it should.




    Then you should call the authorities. I, as a professional don't want to be on the road with careless 18 wheelers any more than you do. Part of this problem though is the over regulation that is forcing veterans of the road like me out, and in our place comes inexperienced young drivers that think they know it all.

    how so?




    report em....NJDOT has no patience for careless truckers.
    according to some they can't even clear the roads of snow.




    And put us out of work.....Thanks.

    nah I would think the cream rises to the top, it should put the idiots that make you all look bad out of work.




    ok.




    Another cost to companies that will not be taken on unless mandated by law. Companies like logistics companies run on extremely slim margins. They just won't spend the money.



    It's not the drivers that don't care though. Most are company drivers.

    Just today, saw a toys r us truck launch snow off its trailer, a good chunk, hit a car. fortunatley it was just snow. one thaw freeze cycle and it could have been much worse....




    here's another example...






    this dooshbag was tailgaiting the car in the right lane both doing about 65, as he approached the hill, he swings behind the car in the fast lane doing about 70, cutting off the guy behind him who slammed on his brakes.....

    we all were doing about 70, in a 65, seconds later as we go up a hill the entire highway is slowed down to 50. all because he wanted to do what again? that was just this morning.

    Bro all i am asking is for truckers to take the 20 mins to remove the ice from thier trucks so i dont get killed or have my vehicle damaged by a truckers negligence.... Who i would bet money on would keepmtrucking on down the road.

    See that ought to be a law not this silly cellphone crap.
    No you are asking us to be fined for late delivery. I should have to remove a ladder everytime I load or unload to open the doors. It shows you want truckers to go out of their way to not inconvienence you

    27.185 is better than any radar dectector for finding out where the speed traps are.
    I have a Gallaxy 44 that swings about 50 watts.

    CB'S are still here but if they take cell phones CBs will be next. I often use mine to get directions to a customer.

    The truck driver continued driving west, but other drivers stopped and came to Morano's aid.

    So a truck has no rights and should let all rude 4 wheelers by before passing those 4 wheelers that are obstructing traffic by going so slow. It is not the slow 4 wheelers fault it is the truck drivers fault. Typical

    Maybe 4 wheelers shouldn't tailgate trucks and it would not happen

    For your information truckers had the best safety record in 2009 since records have been kept. That speaks for itself that truckers are policing themselves
