Got a can of Coca-cola with one of those phrases on the side. This one is taken differently by a truck driver:

Share aCoke with a TAILGATER

Sure! If I can see his windshield!

I could care less if somebody is dumb enough to tailgate me. I get angry when I see other truck drivers tailgating passenger vehicles. If I was a cop, I'd nail each truck driver every time I saw it happening.

confused.gif My truck only does 65 66 if I'm powering up hill with the cruise off. These idiots that wanna do 80 miles an hour and blast past like I'm intentionally slowing them down either on the left or right lane can suck it I stop less have zero worry bout troopers or police so yall keep on trucking callin out POS, smells like ***t, and runnin up my ass and flashing lights and tailgating 4x4s to get them outa the way.

I have zero points

my DAC is clean

And by the way I make more money than u. I don't have too speed to make it

I get there early every time....

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Didn't bother me in the least when people tailgated me. I'd just slow down a little bit or maintain my speed. Eventually people would go around me. I'd get the one finger salute, had people curse at me as they drove past, even throw a bottle at me once, and I'd always give them a big smile and a wave. The looks I got were hilarious.

I guess I have a sick sense of humor. I've lived in the South my entire life and I also love Nascar racing, but do people really think they need to "draft". The only draft they will feel, is if I have to do a hard brake or "look for an out" and they drive up under my ICC bumper.
