    Here we have an example of a couple of slow governed trucks demonstrating the modern 'snail races' of big truck passing.

    Then when they get the huck out of the way I demonstrate a proper passing technique with a big truck that can go the speed limit.

    What's your point? Your a bad driver with a poor attitude as evidenced by your other post.

    The self important nature of your posts is sad.

    This is the kind of pass I like to see, quick fast and efficient. I believe when you see the 65 max governed truck speed rule in effect there will be tons more wrecks out there.

    This was a shocking video!!!
    I was born in a Prime truck and it's all I've ever known. You're saying, when you pass someone you don't have to take 15 minutes??? ABSURD!

    I do the same thing, wait for the snails to finish playing and then blow by them at 68-70. Quick and easy.

    Why post this? "A proper passing technique" LOL... Your "Techniques" have been shown to have difficulty on previous videos...
