    It’s time for me to not be in a 18 wheeler anymore. I’ll do it again when I’m allowed to run over or shoot people that can’t share the road. Common courtesy is gone, I have to push people out of the way after a blinker was on for half a mile and my lane ends. I try to be conscientious of other drivers when I’m over 12’ wide and people insist on passing on my blind side then locking up the brakes to make a turn. Six registered events on the drive cam in 15 miles and none are my doing.

    My company is looking for 3 more drivers with a CDL. It didn't cost anything to talk about it.

    I don't think most persons get how difficult it is to either tow heavy, or large.
    I always "act" like a driver, when I'm towing. Stick to the center lane, flash to pass. Blinkers for thanks.. CB always on, lights always on. off the F*&^^&ing phone..ECT. Most drivers respect me after 20 or so miles, a few just seem to be bad attitudes..
    I'm at 19000 pounds, so stopping is always a planned exercise..

    I feel for ya, brother..

    The “Texas” attitude is gone, when was the last time someone waved at you in traffic?

    Earlier today :anonymous: sounds like you need to move to Cedar Park. Everyone waves suburban/rural one lane roads

    edit: I find its when you venture out to neighborhoods you know are full of people form out of state/country, like Travisso, where people don't wave

    Once you get out of the major cities and off the interstates, Texas driving is still Texas driving. When you're within Californian distance of Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, or Houston, it all goes to shit.

    Last time we went up to Abilene people always moved over when I came up behind them. Several waved...the Texas way.

    Just as soon as we were on the other side of Llano coming back, it all went to shit!

    I remember when we put drive cams on the ambulances, they set them super sensitive and would do off for a fart at the wrong time. But man were they great when there were crashes, made explaining that someone else did something stupid so much easier to the boss.

    Very true, I deliver as far north as Killeen and San Antonio on the south side. Constantly driving through residential areas that are hard to navigate in a smart car.

    When you have to get out and explain to people that parking two feet off your front bumper is a bad idea then you begin to lose faith in humanity. I was very civil and pc in that conversation until she wanted to call my supervisor. I had to tell her about the waiver she signed saying she would deal with construction traffic so she could move in before the neighborhood was completed. It ended in a standoff, I’m on the clock and can’t move forward or backwards. That went well.

    Stick with big brands for parts availability and no more than 10 years old. Sit on lots of bikes and see what feels right.
