    Inattentive truck driver kills another one. It’s a shame they don’t have a special license and testing for big rigs… 🤦🏻‍♂️

      Please cite your sources that says cars get in ten times more accidents than commercial OTR rigs. Congratulations on being a safe driver, you’re the exception these days. Too many inept and reckless cowboys behind the wheel now. Any freaking idiot can get a standard drivers license – and it shows. CDL holders should be held to a higher standard, but these days it’s just a piece of plastic.
