    OK Challenge Going Out-- I challenge you to find anything I did wrong here. I'm always game for constructive criticism and hope this video will serve as a learning tool for me and for others and may actually save lives.

    I don't know what it is about this road but this is about the third time trucks have tried to run me right off the road in order to get in front of me. It's like if they have to spend 12 more minutes to the next passing area at 65 miles per hour which is the speed limit by the way, they will spontaneously implode for lack of going 70-75 which is their state of peace. Wonder what they will do when all trucks are governed to 65 next year....

    He waited way too late to make his run. I figured the guy would touch his brakes and call no joy and fall back in where he was and where he belonged. There was another truck right on my tail so I couldn't hit my own brakes without affecting about 4 or 5 trucks behind me. So rude this guy did that.

    Typical ride on US 287. All the slow trucks piss off all the fast trucks. Just the way it goes. As I remember, this isn't the first time this has happened to you on 287. I'm not condoning that drivers actions. Just not surprised. See it all the time. I'll run 72-75 through there and a wise guy will pass me. It is what it is.

    I know you don't think its a responsibility of yours. And that you are to hold and maintain your lane. But common sense tells me you should have been aware he was coming past you. If not, just expect it out there.

    Don't wanna argue with you. Heck, I could be all wrong on the issue, just my take.

    And its the steering wheel holders like that idiot that passed you who are out there killing families and getting all these regulations put on us. 10% of drivers make it hard on everyone else.
