RealD, yeah we encounter haters on a regular basis. We just have to let it go and drive on. Take pride in your courtesy and professionalism. Remember that there are a lot of grandma and grandpas out there that need a lot of space🤠🤠🤠

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Bumping this...

Hey Bruce - email me at brett@truckingtruth.com - I can help with filing that complain. I know some people over there and they would absolutely want to know about this.

Bruce please report this. I’ve never encountered an exaggerated behavior like this from another truck driver. The driver should be held accountable for this behavior.

Not sure if you have a camera, but had I been in your shoes, I’d have presssed the manual upload button so that the lane encroachment incident was recorded.

G- Town, thanks, I’m not very good with the camera technology and my company won’t let us touch our phones while driving. This was my first experience with this type of situation so I was shaken at the time. My thought is to learn from this experience and just move on and be a courteous driver at all times. I think we all need to realize that there are a lot of beginners out there and make accomaditions for those drivers. The important thing is to be cautious and safe even if it costs us a few minutes of driving time.

Preaching to the choir.

Which, by the way has nothing to-do with reporting a driver shining a laser in your mirror. He decided to punish you for a mistake that had zero negative impact on him.

You asked for our thoughts...we all basically suggested you should report this. Brett even offered to help expedite it for you. If I’m the TMC safety director I definitely want to know when one of my drivers, representing my brand behaves with a deliberate attempt to inflict harm to others. Next time, the net effect of his juvenile behavior could be disasterous and TMC is on the evening news.

I made that call today. I didn’t want to make it an anonymous call so I gave my name and call back number. We’ll see what happens
