Ok, is it just me or has anyone else noticed that Medford coal truck drivers are the worst, most inconsiderate, non-law abiding and most dangerous drivers on the roads?? The are always speeding, running stop lights, pulling out in front of people and simply driving without any regards to anyone else on the road!!!

Get out of their way and you won't have to worry about it.

I don't think most people who don't drive for living even understand when they r being annoying on the road. Riding in the left lane for no reason, not accelerating on entrance ramps, driving 10 mph below the speed limit on hilly roads, speeding up when a truck tries to pass. All things truck drivers deal with for 10-12 hrs a day
leave her be!

It drives me freakin crazy when people don't know how to properly accelerate and judge their gaps in traffic while getting onto the interstate!! They're either scared to death or not paying attention... you should not be on the damn road if that's the case! The on ramp is a "warm up" lane and you're suppose to be getting up to speed (unless traffic is backed up ahead) and blend in with traffic, not do brake checks or come to a stop!!!

I know. It drives me nuts, but it's funny as hell! You can always tell the people who have bad judgement, are scared, not paying attention, and don't fully understand the rules of the road. Those people are usually half the ones that causing the clusters and wreck... shouldn't be allowed on the damn road!

You are right Meadford trucking has the highest CSA scores in the state if you don't know what that is google it. Fact is most coal trucking company's will not hire inexperienced drivers but Meadford pays the lowest so they hire a lot of new licensed CDs drivers with no experience because they pay the lowest they do have a few good drivers but not many and most are on drugs.

So your saying that coal truck driers are the better drivers on the toad and most peoe dont know rules of the road??? Thats really funny because as i sit here at the light in chelyan, not one but TWO Medford coal trucks ran the red light!!! I may not be the most intelligent person out there however, i know the "rules of the road" state that it is illegal to run a red light and that a yellkw light means prepare to stop, not prepareto haul ass and run the impending red light that comes next!!!

You must have a hardon for Medford! What happened did you work for them and get fired for being lazy or speeding?

I believe most of you people post this stuff to hear your gums flap. You obviously never had your first chance at a job. And as for the CSA no one else runs 100 trucks day and night on strip jobs to keep your lights on. You probably voted for Obama and are one of the tree huggers that have a nasty body like your mouth and could use a little light to see yourself and hot water to wash your nasty self that these guys work hard to haul coal to generate power you don't appreciate
