This is for all you pickup truck drivers out there.

Especially for the tall trucks with the jacked up springs and the over sized tires. Do you have any idea what it is like to be driving in front of you at night when you run right up on my bumper with your headlights flooding my car and reflecting off my mirrors and even the backs of my glasses. Would it hurt you to dim your lights?? Really?? If you want to go faster than I am just get in the other lane and go around. Trust me, I am wringing every last mph out of my car that the speed limit will allow and if that is not fast enough for you I would rather have you in front of me anyway. That way when you wreck your truck I will have time to avoid getting caught up in your accident. And by the way, what part of speed limit don't you understand. If you are coming up to a construction zone and the sign says "55mph, speed limit strictly enforced," why do you speed up. Do you have so much money that you don't care if you get a ticket? While we are on that subject. There is a stretch of interstate that starts in Chattanooga and crosses back into Georgia for a few miles before it goes back to TN. Now the speed limit on that stretch of road is 70mph until you cross into GA then it drops back to 65. Can you spell speed trap? Honestly, those Dade county cops are just waiting for you to speed through their little fiefdom so you can add your hard earned money to their coffers. So go ahead, speed on through, I'll watch from the rear. But back to headlights, I don't know who invented those new ones that dim themselves and look blue. If they were supposed to be an improvement I would have to say they are not. The light hurts my eyes and the automatic dimming doesn't kick in until the car is almost past you and it doesn't kick in at all when it is coming up behind you. Anyway, I realize it is hard to see the road at night especially at a high rate of speed, but please have some consideration for the other drivers you are sharing the road with.

don't you know those big trucks like that are for guys with small, hummm, how to say this... d!cks? And, no, they don't think laws apply to them because they have a big truck...

Ha, ha, ha. You may very well have something there. Funny how guys have to overcompensate for small things like that. On the other hand hey will learn someday that possessing a truck is not a 'get out of jail free' card.

I'm actually thinking a stronger, sturdier vehicle for those with weaker, flimsier parts. (Runs like heck to avoid getting clobbered)

And, I have to agree with you on those blue lights. They kind of freak me out. Especially at night.

For real. The first time I saw a car with them I thought it was a cop.

I just thought it looked kind of spooky. I kept looking in the rearview mirror. When my daughter asked me what I was looking at, I said there is something really weird behind us. She thought it was funny that it creeped me out. I still don't like them and, as much as I see them around here, they still are kind of creepy.

Spooky is definitely the word to describe them especially if they are coming up behind you on an otherwise deserted dark road.

I'm with you, people that drive those trucks are jerks. If they knew what it was like they wouldn't put up with it. I don't know what the heck those blue lights are supposed to do, they hurt my eyes too. I guess you could help get those idiots more tickets, the next time you see them coming up on you slow down in front of them, then when the speed limit changes get out of their way, they will speed up and get a ticket. Its gets them off the road for a little while at least.

It seems like a lot of people up here have no regard for the road conditions or speed limits. They drive like they own the roads and no body else should be on them. Just the other night I had an 18 wheeler on my tail going down a mountain. He was forcing me to go 70 mph when most of the time trucks won't go over 40 down that road. When we got to the bottom there was a big rig in front of me that was going slow and I had to slow down cause there was traffic in the other lane. I couldn't go around. I looked in my rear view and that trucker was slewing all over the road trying to not run over me.
