    Anybody else notice how common it is to see flood lights mounted on truck bumpers running all day? They should crack down hard on it. You get caught with it on and blinding people you get it chopped off and destroyed plus a large fine.

    When I did local in Phoenix there were OTR trucks driving around with them on at night.

    The streets are so well lit you don't even need headlights let alone those.

    I'd like to say it's the Volvo crowd, but just as many hoods.

    The drivers of said trucks should be castrated and dipped in alcohol!

    They disabled the work lights on my tractor while it's going over 5mph so I can't. It was actually kind of useful to be able to check my load on an empty highway in the dark. I get kind of nervous when I can't see my straps.

    That's ridiculous. Possible safety issue "not" to be able to check your load on the move. Next thing. You won't be able to pick your nose. Lol

    Yeah no common decency anymore. Guy with a light bar got up behind me the other day and seared my retinas. I have super bright work lights on each side of the sleeper so flashed them at him. You don't like it very much now do you stupid ####. That stuff really gets my goat

    What happens if he hits a bump, stabs himself in the brain and crashes and kills everyone? Won't someone think of the children?! :eek:
