    I'm wondering lately which are the more dangerous drivers out here on the roads today.

    It seems to me, the more dangerous are the angry, aggressive drivers, who refuse to yield, and could care less if they cause an accident, and kill someone.

    I try to drive conservatively, stay out of everyone's way, but no matter how hard you try, your in someone's way, and you piss someone off, multiple times a day.

    Atlanta and Charlotte seems to have the worst, most aggresive and dangerous drivers out here.

    We make decent money, but for what we have to put up with out here, for darn sure we're not getting overpaid.

    Hope a nice raise is coming in January.

    Whatever is behind you is not your problem, let them pass. Stay out of packs and always be scanning. Always keep your eyes moving. Pay no attention to aggressive drivers, eventually their time will come.

    Distracted drivers compromises a much bigger number than PO'ed drivers. These mega pileups are caused primarily by distracted drivers. They get PO'ed AFTER the crash. In trucking, don't hold your breath for a raise, unless they get cabovers,,:biggrin_25522:

    Maybe aggressive drivers are triggered by distracted drivers.

    The ones I hate the most are the ones going slow that floor it as soon as you appear in the left mirror.

    Everytime I'm stuck in traffic I pay attention to the cars near me moving slowly along. Every second one is texting. No exaggeration. That's 50% of drivers in my immediate area distracted while driving. It's an epidemic.

    Took my daughter in the truck this week. She’s heard me say that exact thing about all the texting on the road. She was amazed at how accurate that was.
