Howdy ya'll, I just wanted to clear a few things up with my post yesterday....I am in no way or fashion damning all truck drivers! I think it is a noble job and not just anyone can do it...kinda like nursing...I believe truckers keep america running. I just wish that some would consider just how big they are to a car and slow down a bit. after all getting in a collision with another car is for sure safer then with a big truck that can run over my lil car.I dont think my airbag will do me any good iffin I was under the wheels of a big rig...with another car I have a chance.....I was once a dispatcher for a trucking outfit and most I knew were kinda nice guys..also a few woman[but they had mouths of sailors and more tattoos!]...I just didnt want anyone offended thinking I hate truck drivers..cause I dont...people can be foolish in any job...I have seen my share of horrible nurses trust me.....dale anne

I stayed out of the truck discussion because I don't get out where the trucks run that much But we went
to Florida a few years back and between Nashville
and Atlanta there were three trucks to one car and they just about run over us . Then on the way back when we hit Ohio they were real gentle on us .
Two thoughts My grand dad always drove 25 to 30 and bragged I have never got into an accident . I and thought to my self yea I bet you caused a few .

I figure alot of the truckers are paid by the mile . so that being the case . They sure aren't going to want to drive 25 or 30 .
