the responsibility of driving that truck is what you receive pay for.<quoted text>
Try driving a vehicle that weighs 75,000 pounds and the same thing happens.
There are easy parts of driving and difficult parts. Backing up in daylight is not that bad nor are making tight turns onto side streets which we do from time to time. The challenging part is when you can't see your trailer backing into inside docks. The sun certainly is no help and neither are the customers that have poor or no lighting in the building.
Plus you should try driving that boat around town in snowstorms or icy conditions. That's a whole different driving. I see these truckers from the south driving with their mouth wide open and their head actually over their steering wheel as if they are going to see any better. Others think that it's like driving in the rain until they end up turning the truck over into middle of the highway. It happens every snowstorm.
Truck driving does not require a PhD, but it requires a lot of experience, skill and most of all, common sense, which 50% of the people driving today just don't have.
I have driven the boat in the snow and did not like it a bit. My hands hurt for a week from the white knuckles. I only had to pull it about 20 miles, and that was 20 to many.
50% of drivers forget they can kill instantly for being stupid.
I drive lots for someone not paid for doing so. I am a traffic hazard with cruise set at 75 on I71.
last week on way home from cincinnati I was in right lane 75 on cruise control, and constantly being trapped by people I passed 3 times already. When I had enough of it I showed the idiots real immediate speed.
I pulled directly in front of a chick who could not hold constant speed, and showed her E85 tune with fire coming out the exhaust. Car goes from 75 to 150 in about 500 yards. I went by a state patrolman who must have seen the occurrence, and he pulled her over. Maybe he took easy pickings.
Car has onboard computer that keeps average speed. it resets with each start. I figured I was toast and was going to playback my speed for past 2 hours. It would have done nothing I am sure, but the state cars have zero chance of catching car by themselves. my pulling over I hoped would achive brownie points.
I won't be doing that again on 71. That car I drive is absolutely amazing the power it produces with a tiny engine. You and I could lift it without a hoist no problem. After i voided the warranty in the 1st week with aftermarket parts and pro tune...dyno 452 HP to the ground with all wheel drive. Alcohol tune makes this pup a nasty beast, and so far no corvette or BMW is even a challenge.
in the twisties nothing can touch it....nothing.
2014 Mitsubishi Evolution MR Touring, and Slow Motion Motorsports hop up and tune. look on youtube where evo races world class skiers down the slope. that video made me buy the car.
