The most dangerous threat on our Texas roads right now are semi-Trucks (Diesel) and Pick-up trucks. I'm sick of nearly getting plowed to death by these individuals, and they are usually aggressive because they assume that a bigger vehicle will prevail in the event of an accident. Well we know this to be not so true because every morning on the channel 4 news I see a story of another flipped truck on just about every major highway in Texas and they flip at a much higher rate than smaller cars. Lets talk about the environmental destruction caused by these trucks. They burn an adnormal amout of fuel and let out out a high percentage of the carbon dioxide emissions in the air. I mean when I see these trucks I often ask myself. " Okay that guy hasnt been on a farm all day or a ranch but hes happily roaring through the highways in a truck that size. tail-gating too close to other vehicles, often breaking the speed limit- swerving in and out of lanes for no apparent reason, and making it safe. We get it......It's suppose to look tough or whatever. No actually there are families taking their kids to school and would like to make it safely to their locations. I noticed that Police don't mind being distracted by decorative cars playing music too loud but I don't see enough of these 4X4 wannabe Monster truck drivers pulled over. THEY SHOULD HAVE A CAP SPEED OF 60 MILES PER HOUR. It seems like you drive one of these vehicles and are in a terrible hurry, perhaps you should take the car. In the event of a crash. You kill yourself too and not just the innocent car in front of you! Oh this is a real post! AND REAL LEGISLATION that needs to be pushed.

Might I suggest you move back to New Jersey, New York, or wherever the hell you came here from. Trucks are Texas. If you dont like it, leave.
