You ever just get so riled up about something you have to take out your phone and make a video ranting about it? Well, this guy certainly had one of those days, and his video has now been spread all around social media. In the video, he shows two truck drivers that have been blocking both lanes of the highway for about 15 miles, and he's not exactly wrong for being pissed off about it.
In the video, this guy explains that he is actually a truck driver himself, but what these drivers are doing is making him furious. With some pretty explicit wording, he talks about this situation and exactly why it makes him so mad. Not only does it block traffic, but as you can see, there's just no common courtesy among truck drivers. It gives truckers a bad name, and it's a reason why car drivers do not respect them as much as they should.
One of these truckers needs to make a move, rather than stay holding up traffic. There are lots of drivers on the roads that are not aware that the left lane is for faster traffic, but with these guys both holding commercial drivers licenses, they should know better than this. I mean, it would have taken half a second for the Knight truck to tap his brakes, or the trucker in the left lane could have sped up even more. What they're doing is pretty idiotic and pointless.
Some people need a reminder that we're all sharing the same roads, so its beneficial for everyone to just allow the faster drivers to pass. There's no need to intentionally block someone from passing you. For all the truck drivers out there, please never act like these two. If I were to guess, I'd imagine both of these guys are rookie drivers, but maybe, just maybe, this video made it back to them, so they can see just how dumb they were acting, and they can act more professional in the future.
