Yet Another Jerk That Can’t Play Nice

This idiot saw the same signs at the same time as everyone else, instructing that the lane(s) were going to be closed.

They clearly didn’t think they applied to them, and instead felt that ignoring them, and then crowding on everyone else was the way to go.

You see this A LOT in California, and with California truck drivers. You see this A LOT with foreign drivers. Yeah, I said it. It’s true. My message to you? You’re an asshole. This idiot missed us by inches, all because he couldn’t be professional, nor polite.


Location: US 58 California, near Boron, CA. I was passing a tractor trailer and was returning to my lane. I did not take an excessive amount of time. This pickup truck passed the other tractor trailer on the right shoulder and zoomed out in front to slam on his brakes. I nearly hit him. He would’ve deserved to get hit.

The high beams you see flash behind him are from the tractor trailer I just passed.

I hope karma gets him someday. He could’ve killed us all.

Welcome to my blog and site…

I am an OTR truck driver and this blog will be about what I see on the road – stupidity from cars and trucks alike. It will be about what I think about the trucking industry. It will be about what I live with and live through. It will include scathing comments about mega carriers, mega truckstops, horrible truck driver training programs, industry officials, idiotic government limitations and restrictions. Nothing will be held back.

People need to answer for themselves. If you can see license plates, company names, DOT numbers, etc, in the pics and vids — too bad. In fact, if they don’t show and I know the information, I’ll post it. I’m tired of drivers that endanger my life on a daily basis – cars and trucks alike. You don’t deserve protection of privacy.

I am not perfect and I make mistakes, too. I fully expect that someone, someday, may very well post me on a video somewhere. Fine by me. I am careful each and every day. I want everyone to go home to their loved ones. I am infuriated by those who do not have this very basic, human desire. For those that are dangerous and selfish, I will post your business every chance I get and share it as far and wide as I can.
