    Hello Truckers I have been currently driving otr for 10 months and still consider myself a rookie. Now I have seen lots of pretty questionable things and always make a mental note that you can never get to comfortable. Which brings me to my question since I have been driving I see drivers putting their feet on dash while going down the road . I like keeping two feet on floor & grinding my gears. Have any of you truckers seen this & see the purpose behind it?

    They don’t see a need to check their mirrors and so they just ride down the road Braindead and obvious. And they think that not being at fault in an accident means that they are a good driver since there’s no such thing as a good steeringwheelholder.

    I always figured doesn't it block what they see & situational awareness is drastically reduced. I have also seen this at night time

    Why anybody would put there feet on the dash is beyond me, just think of all the nasty things u walk in at the average truckstop. Disgusting. Some drivers are pigs
