    guess I'm a "super truckin' billy big rigger" cause my truck is not governed at 62 and I drive around 70 most times.

    gosh, I never knew!!

    Am I the only one who noticed the camera truck didn't "leave room" for stopped vehicles.
    That's a ticket now! (because truck drivers have nothing better to do with their money than support the local PBA)

    Anyway, I'm tired of this stupid 3rd lane restriction.
    I think it's going to become more common until the LEO's crack down on it.
    If the donut patrol can't be bothered to pull over the 80 mph Audi or the Honda switching 3 lanes per mile, then why would they be bothered to come after us in the 3rd lane for 500 feet?

    It's all about courtesy,and proper driving habits. No one cares anymore.People don't bother with doing the speed limits,using turn signals. Respect for other people just doesn't exist. And I'm a party to that as well,I will show respect to people that are driving correctly,and disrespect to the ones that don't.(use your imagination)

    1st off...maybe if Mr. International would have been where he could see ahead...there were 4-wheelers on the shoulder...perhaps Werner remembered his courtesy safety training and stayed over until he passed the cars on the shoulder.

    2nd - for those who say "it's my right to use and stay in any lane I want as long as I am doing the speed limit"...more and more states are passing "stay right except to pass" laws...it's a little thing called courtesy...a lack of courtesy causes road rage...and road rage tends to ruin everybody's day.

    3rd - for those who are in 65 mph trucks who are so impatient that they decide that they have to pass a 64 mph truck...ask yourself 'how much time am I going to lose by staying behind him for a while instead of tying up traffic for miles to get around it'....I drove a 62 mph truck for years, and would hesitate to pass anyone doing anything above 60....I am now in a 68 mph truck and hesitate to try to pass 65 mph trucks unless there is a long gap in traffic behind me...all in all, in the grand scheme of things...it doesn't cost you that much time to use a long forgotten gift....patience.

    If drivers like that start talking smack on the radio I offer to allow them the opportunity to say their ethnic slurs to my face at the next rest area or truck stop. So far no takers.

    Camera truck is just as bad as Werner IMHO. You backed out of it enough to let Werner over which is good. The idiot paused for a moment on Werners bumper but you blocked him in and didn't give him room to pass on the right which is probably what he wanted to do. Camera truck could have made the situation safer by backing out of it a little more but that doesn't provide fodder for his Youtube channel.

    Sad operating by all three trucks.......period!

    I could see Werner in the middle lane if there were a heavy dose of on ramps......but no.

    The jerk driving the International should be in jail.

    Spike Lee shouldn't be driving and making movies at the same time either.

    People seem to get a sick sense of enjoyment watching fools go at each other these days.

    I felt ashamed when drivers would start that racial crap on the radio. But then, I was fresh out of the military where most racists got filtered out sooner or later. The civilian world was a real eye opener for my first few years.
