    Coincidentally, the only time I ever had a truck run into mine was in a Loves truck stop in Pennsylvania. The driver tried to get away and parked all the way on the other side of the Truckstop and then hid inside the Truckstop for about 30 minutes while I stood outside his door. He was also a driver from Ontario. Spoke OK English but was obviously not a Canadian born citizen. Scary to think that's the drivers in Canada are possibly worse than ours considering the weather they have to drive in.

    I was at Love's in Barstow when a driver from Ontario came in and struck a road call truck and injured a tire shop employee who was standing behind this vehicle.

    Also, I notice that drivers from Ontario can be a bit rude.

    The one that hit my truck wasn't rude he just acted like he didn't know that he hit my truck at all until I told him (a lie) that the truck down on the corner had made a video of it and showed me how he hit my truck that was the only truck on that side of the entire parking lot.

    His story was that he was backing in across from me and apparently didn't even see my truck and just for some unknown reason changed his mind and parked on the other side of the lot. Which was obviously a lie but I got all of his info and gave it to my company.

    I see a lot of them from the western provinces out here, and they aren't any better. Canadians love to think they're polite, but they're not really, not when it counts.

    Well I haven’t stopped at a loves in probably 8 years or more. Drivers need to just slow down period it’s not a ####ing race. 5 mph is fast enough in any parking lot
