Speeding Trucks

One thing that makes me very nervous is big trucks that don’t obey the rules of the road. It’s one thing to be behind the wheel of a Honda Civic and go a little over the speed limit, but you’d think that if you were the driver of an 18-wheeler, carrying who-knows-how-many-tons of stuff, that you would be sensitive to your own potential for causing disaster. It’s not just speeding that bugs me, tailgating seems to be a favourite pastime too. I mean, how fast do they think that thing will come to a stop? I will say that there are a lot of really good drivers out there, and if you’re one, I salute you. As with any profession, there are good ones, and there are not-so-good ones. Sadly, it is the latter that people notice, and that can give a profession a bad name. Life is full of compromises – we all (6.5 billion of us) share the same air, the same water, the same roads. Next time you want to do your own thing, take a moment to think about how that may impact on other people. Is it really so important to get those Mini Bug Vacs to Wal-Mart by noon?
