      If it wasn’t for truckers how would you get your trout supplies, fishing poles, snacks while your fishing, fuel to cook your trout and beer to drink after a successful day of fishing? I agree with your anger too. He needs to be punished harshly to send a message to all these other unsafe knuckleheads but the nation needs trucking logistics to exist.

      Most truck drivers are safe drivers. You have to be to deal with all the idiots in their cars speeding while on their cellphone. But this guy here is also an idiot. Crossed the median into oncoming lanes, he should be jailed and CDL revoked for life.

    This guy needs to be locked up. He’s lucky he didn’t kill people. He’s making my job tough on me. The cops will be even worse now on us safe drivers.
