It's not only the 4 wheelers you have to worry about out there. Had an annoying encounter today.

woah, that was close! Those are the drivers that give the rest of this Industry a black eye. Glad you didn't wreck.

My dashcam is that good :) In the minute or two before that event he pulled up beside me before another car backed him down and the cam got a real good look at it.

I realized it'd be silly not to post my dashcam after saying that lol. http://amzn.com/B00U0OJMYG My only problem with it is that the event file saving isn't particularly intelligent. If a new file was created 2 seconds ago, and you have an event to save, it will only save the current file when you press the button. Kind of a silly problem to leave in, but since it records many hours before overwritting, it's also easy to grab the needed files when i stop for a minute or two.

Wow. There's no excuse for that. He should have just missed the exit and took the next one. I am surprised you were able to slow down in time. Ridiculous, and unfortunately all too common. Glad you're okay and I hope he gets reprimanded appropriately by his company. He'll kill someone driving like that one day.

That is reckless as all hell. I hope you have contacted their company and have forwarded that video. I'm not one to hope people lose their jobs but to be as reckless as that driver was perhaps that's what he needs as a wake up call. I doubt training would do him any good as that's a no brainer of something u shouldn't do.

That was just wrong. The driver of SAIA should have signaled, SLOWED DOWN, and got behind you, if he was going to take that exit, OR, as was stated earlier, took the next exit.

You need to send that to Saia's Safety Department

Well it's a "palletized trucking" truck carrying a saia trailer and on their website they have their safety staff listed so i sent it in. I'll update if they email me back later.
