Has it occured to you that maybe the drivers are sick of sharing the road with you? Have you ever drivin a truck or road with a driver for that matter? Do you know any drivers personally? If so then I am sure you must realize just how stressful their job is. I took a trip with a driver recently and I am here to tell you it is a miracle they don't run over everyone out of pure frustration! People in the cars are more dangerous than they are!!!! Show the drivers some respect, if you got it....a driver brought it! I will grant you some drivers are asses but not all.

Every one I have come across is a road hog. They speed, pass when they shouldn't, and generally ignore everyone else on the road. I hang back when I see one so I don't get ran off the road. I'm sure it's not all of them, but it sure seems to be alot of them. I think MBI needs some safe driving lessons for their drivers.
They don't have to disregard traffic laws, do they?

MBI is the nation's largest garbage haulers and is constantly under fire for being overweight.

This morning a MBI truck was going to hit us driving on the 90/94 Bishopford. He was trying to get on line without even looking to see if there was a car beside him. He was trying to get in the faster line. He then saw us trying to get his license plate number and was trying to drive away. He was going to hit others on the expressway. No police anywhere in sight I reported it. It just cost me a dime. The truck was not loaded he was just driving crazy.

As a recently retire professional driver ( 20-plus years without an accident) most but not all truck drivers are unsafe and a serious danger to the motoring public. Their egos are too big, be excessive abused by warehouse personnel and employers, etc. Most seriously need to be on mental health medication. I have quit job after until I found one that did better than others.
Right now I am in the process of pursuing a Workman's Comp claim because of employer mental abuse.
I have already been approved for Unemployment benefits notwithstanding the fact that I quit, Ohio is ready to prosecute Civil Rights violations, and they will be hearing from my attorney in a few days.
Divers DO have a few rights. Keeping good documentation of "events" [and don't forget pictures]and filing administrative complaints is the secret to prepare for action (war) against abusive employers.

If you have never ridden in one of those beasts you have no idea what it is like to be a truck driver. They turn on their signal and some little smart azz will speed up and try to get around them. Problem is they have blind spots where they can't even see the dumb azz. Just like Mz Behavin said, if you got it a trucker brought it. So why not try to HELP the truck drivers instead of b*tching about them so much. Mine doesm't drive for MBI but I hear the idiotic driver horror stories on the phone or see them myself when I go out on the road with him. There is good and bad in all professions as we all do or at least should know. And I want my trucker to get home safely to his family just as much as you want your trip to be safe. If you will help watch out for him he will do his best to watch out for you too and so will most others.

i drive a rig around 58 mph and a car needing an exit will fly around and take the exit from the left lane missing me by a foot

almost every car does it so when u say every trucker or every driver for MBI you better look at every person that drives a car!

i drive for mbi in tennessee, these trucks are governed at 64mph on the cruise and 62 on the pedal. I can't tell you how many times i get cut off everyday. Trucks take over 300' to stop at 55mph. When you cut one off and then you hit your brakes you are almost attempting suicide. I've had cars jump out in front of me doing less than 20mph and me being in the far left lane trying to avoid people jumping on the highway. PEOPLE DRIVE WITH THE UNDERSTANDING YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE OUT THERE. PUT DOWN THE CELL PHONE, QUIT TEXTING, DON'T USE THE LAPTOP, DON'T PUT ON MAKE UP DON'T READ A BOOK,NEWSPAPER,BUSINESS PAPERS WHILE DRIVING.

Maybe all drivers should consider road saftey trying to make a truck wreck just to get in front of a semi is not safety andy trying to get in front of a semi to slam your brakes is taking your own life in your hands please consider it takes longer for a truck to stop and when a truck slams on its brakes there is always internal damage.

In Illinois on route 394, with 2 lanes in each direction, I always see MBI drivers hogging the left lane, you know the passing lane, seems to me they have no respect for anyone, even other truck drivers. have even seen some with thier loads on fire in thier trailers, not once but twice on the same route.

Amen brother. A lot of people don't realize that everything we use and eat was brought by a truck and trailer at some point in the line. Either from the farm to the store, or the manufacturer to the store etc. Our gas we burn in our cars. Same thing. Some guy with a tanker hand to fill those tanks. I've driven truck as needed with a company but I was a wrench head and didn't have to do it full time. But it was stressful and sometimes plain old scary. Share the road people.
