I drive the Mass Turnpike into the Boston market almost every day. So those days are quite often. I’d say they are every day….but I get Thursdays and Sunday off.

The favorite move of the “M*******” is the two lane exit slide. That’s when they drive the middle lane fast enough to get in front of you, then they slide to the right and slow down so they can make the exit ramp. All while crossing two lanes off traffic.

One of the rules Roehl taught me was to “expect the expected”. So now I’m on to them…lol.

Keep driving safe all.

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

If Chicago is in the equation, I can definitely relate. I’m amazed at how so much stupid can culminate in one location at the same time lol.

I'm still amazed that with all the miles we drive, everywhere we drive, and with all the blatantly stupid drivers we see that we don't see more accidents.

Anybody else?

Yeah, I totally agree. It’s only because the professionals know how to avoid crushing the 4 wheelers. I guess that’s a credit to the industry. Unfortunately, most of the crazies will never know how close they came to death

Totally agreed.

I always tell people it's like big rigs have a very small sticker on the front of the truck that says, "Pull out now!" and no one pulls out in front of you until you're close enough to read that little sticker.

And why do old people always pull right out in front of you, only to go 15 mph under the speed limit? The only people with nowhere to go and no hurry to be there. Well, they don't always pull out in front of you. They mostly do it if you're the only vehicle coming and waiting 5 more seconds for you to pass would have been completely safe.

Have a day where it seems every dumb driver on the road is focused on you? Like they all have a get together at the start of the day, hold up your picture and say "everyone focus on this guy, what ever dumb crap your going to pull do it in front of him".

I have days like that everyday driving my 4wheeler. I think I'm more critical of truckers when not driving a truck

I remember when I was getting ready to head home for my home time after 5 weeks out on the road, I felt like not only drivers but other things was out to get me from getting home. Traffic, construction, dispatch asking if I could do one last load on the way home but taking hours for trailer to be loaded, etc. Pretty sure it was just my imagination but seemed like everything was out to get me from getting home.

Always got home on time though haha!

My usuals are New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The only benefit is that it's night so it's not that bad, but once the sun comes up I just want to pull over until it goes back down rofl-2.gif

I'll bet. I couldn't do that area daily as some drivers.
