True!

When you are young you want what everyone else has . . when you are old you want what everyone else had.

Probably an undocumented immigrant rig driver who doesn't know bigrigs are required to be driven slower than other vehicles, and the payload doesn't look to be secured the best.

One important rule of driving on the open road, never ride side by side to anything any longer than you have too. Speed up, slow down but for crying out loud don't ride next to any vehicle for any length of time. The obvious exception is heavy traffic.

Another important rule, if people are passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane.

Or just a big old bubba running late because he stopped for beer-thirty. Read some of the comments by truck drivers. All admitting fault, all thinking its funny, and not a single one written in mexican.

Sorry if I offended you. Nowhere did I mention any hispanics- I was actually thinking Russki's since I have noticed several of them involved in major rig accidents. How do they pass the testing for CDL's?

100% true. I hate it when traffic approaches a semi truck they slow down so everyone has to ride alongside of it for miles.JUST PASS THE DAMN THING. I learned along time ago while riding my mc, don't hang around trucks.

People in Colorado clearly don't know that rule. And I am sure it isn't only Colorado.
