I am constantly amazed by some of the crap people hook to their vehicles.

If that big truck could speed up to keep the dumbazz from passing, why wasn't he speeding up to begin with?

I hate hate hate watching a couple of stick shift heroes in big trucks in two lanes when neither have the horsepower nor the inclination to go faster. For miles.

The left lane is for passing. Period. Not trying to pass. Not thinking about passing. Not wishing you could pass. Not in the left lane just because you are from Oklahoma. If you are in the left lane, regardless of speed, and there is someone behind you, you are in the wrong.

Oh, and the driver of the small car is an idiot. Maybe a frustrated and out of patience idiot. But an idiot nonetheless.

All drivers have the responsibility to avoid an accident. Having the right of way does not absolve you of that responsibility.

The trucker is at fault. He sped up to keep someone from passing. He crossed the left solid line to gain more room so he could continue to speed up.

Morning rant over.

Sounds like you have never been behind the wheel of a semi. There are a bunch of factors that could have come into play; posted speed limit was X and truck that he was passing was going Y, while going up hill some trucks do not have the power that others do, being loaded heavier will slow you down faster on a grade. The car is definitely in the wrong, he just assumed that the 80K pound truck should give way to his 2000# car (bad choice), the truck did move to give the car room when he had no other choice.

There is a thing that most people forget about, it is to the right of the brake pedal. Some refer to it as a go fast pedal.

It is more frustrating for me, having been an over the road truck driver and still have my CDL, I see more often then not people getting on the highway and waiting until they are in the lanes moving before they decide to get up to speed. I daily drive a Crew cab short box 4X4 and people pull out in front of me all the time, my truck has mods and would be a good race between it and a stock Mustang GT.

Not trying to be an azz, but people really need to pay attention to their driving and what is going on around them rather then assuming that everyone will get out of their way. You get 2 people in the same area with that thought process and that is usually where the accident site is.......
