Or tailgating little cars on the highway.
If these little cars would get the F*** out of the middle lane ... or SPEED UP ... this would never be an issue. You slow us down, you cost us money .... we get pissed! What do you expect? MOVE OVER!!
First, in most cases the car being tailgated is already well over the speed limit, because EVERYBODY is well over the speed limit. And sometimes there is no place for the truck to go, anyway, because he is tailgating a whole line of cars and just wants to move up one slot, then one more slot, then one more .... There is no excuse in any case for an 18-wheeler riding 5 feet off the rear bumper of a car in heavy traffic at 75 MPH. It is as if I held a gun to your head and said, "Don't worry. It won't go off."
P.S. Middle lane? We don't have many of those in Maine. Just travel lane and passing lane.
