    Sounds like an infringement to me. Once part of the Constitution has no more power than another.

    So now a truck tailgating means a car was not? You are spinning so fast you make me dizzy.

    If I have a day where I am cut off less than 10 times by 4 wheelers I had a good day. Like always it is always the truckdriver and never the rude, inconsiderate, always in a hurry to go nowhere 4 wheelers.

    I haven't proven tailgating? You are the one who claims the car was back far enough yet you have not shown facts as to how far the car was behind the truck

    all by that time causing a multi car backup slowing the passing lane to under 50mph in a 65 so he wouldn't be "inconvenienced"....
    So you are pissed because he slowed you down? The problem is by time he could pull out he lost his speed because of 4 wheelers. It is time 4 wheelers started giving big trucks room and realizing the big truck has as much right as anyone else. Truckers pay far more road taxes then you ever will

    I think all cell phone use should be banned while drivin'. An it's one of the smarter things our gov't has tried to do....
    Then do it for all drivers not just truckers

    Yes, they must think the escorts in front and back of the oversize loads must have an unusual hobby.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Better yanken a container, than choking a chicken in a truck stop.

    Re: U.S. proposes cellphone ban for truck drivers

    I almost wen teh TD route, got "accepted" to a driving school with a Company out of Dallas. Stevens Trucking. Then they explained 5 weeks on the road at .26 a mile, oh and the first year I'd have to find transport to and from Dallas for picking up the truck and returning it. SCREW dat.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
