    Major respect for the driver pulling the wiggle wagons.

    And I hope the judge throws the book at the four-wheeler.

    I don't know what it is with Infiniti drivers but so many of them that I see on the road are incredibly reckless and obnoxious. I was going through Indiana today on a three Lane and trying to merge over to the right lane but was blocked on the side and front. An Infiniti driver pulls up behind me and starts flashing his brights repeatedly until I was able to merge over, then flips me the universal sign language. I'm trying to get over and it's not like I'm deliberately doing anything other than driving as normal to get out of their way. Bunch of jerks

    Lately it seems anyone behind the wheel of certain Nissan/Infiniti models (Altimas/G35s/G37s/Rogues/Muranos)have been trying to qualify for the Darwin Award,if not Douchebag of the Week!
    Don’t see it with many,if any Z drivers though-apparently some of them have a sense of self-preservation!

    That is what happens when a car runs into you and you're driving with 2 HANDS on the wheel instead of a 2 fingers holding the steering wheel. This man is a PROFESSIONAL...:notworthy:

    I think you greatly misunderstood that driver there. He was probably just having trouble finding an opening in an adjacent lane, doesn't understand how to slow down on his own and/or is relying on adaptive cruise for it (or whatever it is that allows them to tailgate with total impunity while talking to two or more cellphones at once), and was signalling you to slow down (way down) to help him find that opening... I am very confident that that is the correct interpretation of the "strobing high beams at your rear-end" signal (curiously enough, horn usage without a plausible emergency often also means the same thing).

    Both good drivers (apparently). Passing truck wasn’t even a slug race & didn’t stay on pedal to plow car. Need rest of the story to confirm

    Not sure if the doubles truck had them, but would you pros think the driver of the doubles used the trailer brakes to get the pups under control?

    Edit: used Trolley valve instead of foot pedal to get the pups back behind him.
