Travel

I just read that 38 million people are traveling today. holy crap! That got me a thinkin of an idea that I had a while back that you guys are sure to vocally disagree with. I think that one day a month, no semis should be allowed on the road. I was reminded of this today when this trucker almost clipped the front of my car. I think they should at least test this idea for a couple months. If the "coke" and "speed" trend for that month correlates, then we should make it a new tradition.

Let me be the first to say: fuck semi drivers and the horse they rode in on. Having to commute 4 hours a day has galvinsed my hatred for semi drivers.

Semi drivers suffer from the 500 lb gorilla syndrome, in that they think they own the road since they outweigh you by a factor of 10. fuck that!

The worst is when they overtake another semi but go less than 1 mph more than the semi in the left lane while doing so. So you get caught behind them going 15 mph less than you were. what fuckers.

when i was on I65 about 7 years ago I had one move from the left lane into the right lane when i was next to him and it forced me into the median. just because that bastard didn't see me! I had to drive on slippery 10" grass at about 70 mph. I could have died!

this almost happened to someone in front of me today on my way to work. luckly the guy honked and the semi driver saw him.

As to your 1 day a month rule. I think a more feasble solution to these guys is to force them to stay in the right lane no matter what. they all go about the same speed anyway.

bastards!

semis passing semis is the problem. Almost all traffic slow downs are because of this.

Here's another solution, although it's a little late in the game:

Why not add an additional lane for semis only? That way we, the car drivers, still have a passing lane. Just a thought.
