' I get out from in front of or anywhere near 'trucks' in my car/driving. I see any vehicle towing anything, or hauling things wide berths. I have towed enough that I can say the general driving public exhibit EXTREME ignorance to bigger vehicles stopping abilities. I am that 4 wheeler that makes a hole when I see an 18 wheeler put on a directional so he losses less momentum on a grade when the truck in front he is passing lost too much already. I actually run blocks when it is safe to do so, because folks as drivers to a large degree fit into the category of 'a person is smart, people are stupid'. Paraphrase Agent K/MIB. When in a car and out among others, a smart person seems to act like stupid people. Just look at my Oct post about my wife's totaled 2 year old car.
